Fitch Issues BB- Rating for Seychelles

Written by: Bridgewest

The Seychelles government has started one of the largest reform programs in the recent history 10 years ago and ever since the ratings issued by credit rating agencies were steady and without significant variations. The last rating was issued at the beginning of this year by Fitch and the agency noted the good performance of the economy and the national budget. Our company formation agents in Seychelles can help foreign investors who want to open companies here.

The Seychelles retained its last year rating issued by Fitch

Fitch is one of the most important credit rating agencies in the world and its predictions are one of the most important tools for foreign investors, which is why the BB- rating issued for Seychelles at the beginning of the year gives the county a huge advantage.  The result was issued for the long term local and foreign-currency default ratings.

According to the agency, Seychelles’ public debt continues to follow a downward path, as the government still has important bank reserves. This is also the second consecutive year in which the country keeps the rating by following the Extended Fund Facility scheme issued by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Seychelles is not only an offshore destination, and thus investors who want to open onshore companies here can rely on our company registration advisors.

The Seychelles budget had a 3.4% surplus at the end of 2017

The surplus registered by the Seychelles budget at the end of last year surpassed the predictions of the IMF which has weighed a lot in this year’s rating. The government has enhanced the country’s external position by increasing its bank reserve and thus it has managed to repay the debts it had 10 years ago when the first reform was enabled.

In 2018, Seychelles is expected to have a 1.3% surplus of the Gross Domestic Product, according to Fitch. By the end of 2019, the national debt is expected to decrease by 50% more.
