KBRA Releases U.S. Bank Ratings Compendium for First-Quarter 2019

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its latest U.S. Bank Ratings
Compendium, which analyzes the 1Q results of U.S. banks with KBRA
long-term ratings.

Themes discussed in the Compendium include:

  • Margin pressures are rising as more than half of our KBRA-rated
    universe showed a decline in net interest margin in 1Q19.
  • Despite this pressure, KBRA notes that our rated universe largely
    continues to reflect strong core performance, underlying negligible
    credit losses, and solid operating fundamentals.
  • First-quarter 2019 updates on all publicly traded U.S. banks in KBRA’s
    rated universe, focusing on key performance and credit metrics, along
    with medians of key ratios.
