» FISL Appointed by Bangladesh
October 30th, 2012. FISL is pleased to confirm the announcement by the SEC and Central Bank of Bangladesh of their grant of a license to act as a recognized designated Registered Credit Rating Company.
Philippe Piette (CEO of FISL) stated "This is an important step for the development of Bangladesh, South East Asia and wider spheres. The recognition of an openly objective and independent Credit Rating Company will enable greater transparency and increase opportunities for trade. I am pleased to have teamed up with WASO Credit Rating Company (BD) Ltd. as our local partner. WASO is part of a highly respected consulting and engineering group in Bangladesh.”
"Companies do not pay FISL to provide any ratings, instead FISL applies rigorous widely acclaimed analysis based only on data that has been proven to be accurate. This enables not only transparency, but fairness to companies globally. All are assessed by the same open and transparent process".
Philippe added "At a time when the perception of risk is heightened, the accurate and open assessment of companies in Bangladesh can only improve their prospects for increased trade."
FISL already provides WVB Credit Ratings, together with WVB Business risk and WVB Shari'a Ratings.
