Spanien sættes på overvågning for nedjustering


Rating bureauet Moody’s sætter Spanien på overvågning for mulig nedjustering fra sin aktuelle Aa1 rating. Årsagen er iflg. Moody’s disse:

(1) Spain’s vulnerability to funding stress given its high refinancing needs in 2011. This vulnerability has recently been amplified by fragile market confidence.
(2) A potential further increase in the public debt ratio should the cost of bank recapitalisation prove to be higher than expected so far, whether to meet higher-than-expected asset impairments or simply to retain the confidence of the wholesale markets.
(3) Increased concerns over the ability of the Spanish government to achieve the required sustainable and structural improvement in general government finances given the limits of central government control over the regional governments’ finances.
