HCMC – Tien Phong Securities Corporation (HOSE: ORS) announced today, October 6, that the Vietnam-based credit rating agency FiinRatings had assigned ORS a “BBB-” rating with a stable outlook.

FiinRatings is an agency licensed by the Ministry of Finance and technically partnering with S&P Global Ratings. It also has the support of the Asian Development Bank.

The “Stable” outlook reflects FiinRatings’ expectation that ORS will continue to benefit from its strategic role in the ecosystem of Tien Phong Commercial Joint Stock Bank and maintain its position in investment banking.

FiinRatings assessed ORS’s ability to raise capital as adequate. This plays a significant role in maintaining the company’s liquidity position.

ORS is among the first securities companies in Vietnam to publicly disclose its credit rating. The move aligns with legal regulations and demonstrates the company’s commitment to transparency.

The credit rating is seen as a stepping stone for ORS’s future business expansion. The company aims to diversify its operations and maximize shareholder profits based on three pillars: investment banking, securities brokerage, and proprietary trading.

The “BBB-” rating reflects the firm’s ability to meet its debt obligations at a “relatively good” level.
