Karachi, July 13, 2010: JCR-VIS Credit Rating Company Limited has maintained the medium to long-term entity rating of Security Investment Bank Limited (SIBL) at ‘A’ (Single A) and short term rating at ‘A-2’ (A-Two).

With recovery in valuation of investment portfolio, net worth of SIBL improved over FY09, despite a significant loss posted for the year. The asset mix largely comprises investment in money and capital markets. While credit risk carried by the institution is considered manageable on account of limited lending activities, and fixed income instruments mostly comprising government paper, the institution is however exposed to price risk arising on both its holding of long term PIBs and listed equities.

Debt leverage has declined consistently over time. Almost three-fourths of the company’s borrowings are secured against investments. Liquid reserves vis-à-vis the remaining liabilities are considered adequate.

Given limited opportunities for deployment of funds, earnings profile of the institution has come under stress. Future business strategy of the company remains to be developed, given the prevailing dynamics in the NBFCs sector at large. In view of the above, Outlook on the medium to long term rating has been revised from ‘Stable’ to ‘Negative’.
