Fitch affirms Dubai Islamic Bank at ‘A’
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Dubai Islamic Bank’s (DIB) Long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at ‘A’. This is due to the bank’s systemic importance and the Dubai government’s 30 per cent stake. Hence, there is a high probability of support from UAE authorities if needed. The bank’s Viability Rating (VR) at ‘bb’ reflects the domestic operating environment and DIB’s asset quality among others. The Long-term IDR is expected to be stable.
