About our credit rating

Liberty Financial Limited has a New Zealand dollar long term issuer rating of BBB (Outlook Stable).

A BBB rating is considered an investment grade rating by market participants and is less vulnerable to non-payment than speculative issues. An institution rated 'BBB' exhibits adequate protection parameters. However, adverse economic conditions or changing circumstances are more likely to lead to a weakened capacity to meet its financial commitment.
