JCR The ratings reflect the strong support that
the African Development Bank (the Bank) draws
from its members, particularly the industrialized
countries, its solid capital base and sound
financial position resulting from prudent
operations and conservative risk management, and
the preferred creditor status that it enjoys
FITCH Capitalisation is sound at AfDB, ranking
among the highest of the MDBs
MOODYs Indeed, the AfDBs indicators of
risk-adjusted assets are on a par with or compare

environment in which to operate, the bank's
management in recent years has greatly
strengthened the bank's financial profile. AFDB's
capital and liquidity, as well as its qualitative
