Consortium of banks headed by J.P. Morgan Chase will help Uzbekistan get a sovereign credit rating

Uzbekistan chose as its chief financial consultant in obtaining a sovereign credit rating and issue of sovereign bonds a consortium of banks headed by J.P. Morgan Chase.

This is stipulated by the presidential decree "On Additional Measures to Diversify Sources of External Financing".
"The study shows the need to obtain a sovereign credit rating of the country, which allows obtaining corporate ratings by leading banks and large enterprises of Uzbekistan, significantly expand the republic's opportunities to attract foreign investments and loans without providing state guarantees," the document says.

The fee for the issue and placement of sovereign bonds, as well as fiscal and payment services, listing and transfer services, upon receipt of the sovereign credit rating will be carried out from the reserve fund under the Ministry of Finance.
Funds received from the placement of bonds will be used to build affordable housing, roads, improve water supply and sanitation, and build other infrastructure.

Uzbekistan is working to obtain the first sovereign credit rating and is preparing to place Eurobonds at least since February 2018. Then it was reported that the government will place bonds not for the sake of raising funds, but for creating a benchmark for the Uzbek market.

The expert on institutional reforms and economic development Ildus Kamilov especially for Spot explained that assigning a credit rating to the country opens the way for obtaining ratings by domestic companies and banks.

Ultimately, this facilitates access to international capital markets and attracting investors to the domestic stock market.
Under the condition of obtaining a sovereign credit rating, Uzbekistan can start placement of Eurobonds up to $ 300 million by the end of 2018.
