August 16, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 16, 2021--

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases its U.S. Bank Ratings Compendium and inaugural ESG Bulletin. The compendium provides our latest view of the U.S. banking sector, including KBRA’s updated sector outlook, and analyzes the 2Q21 results of U.S. banks with KBRA long-term ratings. This issue of the Compendium includes our inaugural Quarterly Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Bulletin, which focuses on how banks are incorporating various ESG factors into their strategies and business decisions, for which community and midsize regional banks within KBRA’s rated portfolio have a positive story to tell, overall.

The Compendium includes 2Q21 summaries on all publicly traded U.S. banks in KBRA’s rated universe, focusing on key performance and credit metrics, along with medians of key ratios. The Compendium also includes the top 10 lowest cost deposit franchises, highest reserves to loans, and largest sequential changes in return on assets, net interest margin, net charge-offs, and nonperforming asset ratios. In addition, we provide a supplement with 184 debt issues—along with rating, amount issued, coupon, and maturity—among KBRA-rated banks.
