Fitch affirms Colombia-based Banco Multibank's national ratings

Fitch Ratingssaid April 11 that it affirmed the long- and short-term national ratings of at AA(col) andF1+(col), respectively.

The outlookis stable.

The ratingsreflect the support the bank will receive from its Panama-based parent, , if needed.

The Colombian unit also benefits from the technological,operational and risk control synergies and best practices of the group.
