On 26 July 2017, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'AA+'
long-term and 'A-1+' short-term issuer credit ratings to Oesterreichische
Entwicklungsbank AG. The rating thus corresponds to the rating of the Republic of Austria.
According to Standard & Poor's this rating reflects Oesterreichische Entwicklungsbank's critical role in implementing Austria's international development policy, since it is the government's sole agent for financing private-sector investments in developing and transition countries. Furthermore, OeEB's connection to Oesterreichische Kontrollbank AG (OeKB) had a positive effect on the rating of OeEB.
