In April 2007, HwangDBS Investment Bank Berhad has been rated by an external rating agency, the Rating Agency Malaysia Berhad (RAM), a long-term rating of A2 and a short-term rating of P1. Financial institutions rated in 'A' category are adjudged to offer adequate safety for timely payments of financial obligations, and has adequate credit profile. Meanwhile, the 'P1' rating is defined by RAM as having superior capabilities for timely payments of obligations.
In September 2008, RAM reaffirmed HwangDBS Investment Bank Berhad's rating of A2/P1 and the long-term rating has a stable outlook. According to RAM, the ratings were premised upon HwangDBS Investment Bank Berhad's strong franchise in the stockbroking industry, sound risk-management framework, healthy funding and liquidity positions, as well as strong capitalisation. Given Hwang-DBS (Malaysia) Berhad's core stockbroking business, the ratings also consider the volatility of the Bank's performance vis-a-vis its close correlation to the performance of the local bourse.
