S&P affirms, withdraws ratings of Kuwait Finance House

S&P Global Ratings on May 14 affirmed Kuwait Finance House KSCP's long- and short-term issuer credit ratings at A-/A-2, then withdrew the ratings at the bank's request.

Prior to withdrawal, the outlook on the long-term rating was negative, reflecting the downside risks to the lender's asset-quality indicators from its financings in Turkey.

The agency recently cut Turkey's credit rating deeper into junk, saying high inflation and a depreciating currency were increasing the risk that the country would struggle to cope with its high external debts and could face a hard landing.
