Moody's assigns rating to Industrial Development Corp. of South Africa

The agency said the rating is mapped directly from the company's Baa3 long-term global scale issuer rating, reflecting its strong relative creditworthiness among debt issuers in South Africa.

Moody's noted that IDC has shown adequate liquidity buffers and a stable funding profile, but remains dependent on market funding, making it vulnerable to potential increased risk aversion by institutional investors.
