FairMoney Nigeria, a digital bank, has obtained investment-grade ratings, BBB (NG) Long Term, and A3 (NG) Short Term with a stable outlook by Global Credit Rating (GCR). The assigned ratings were driven by FairMoney's ungeared position, robust liquidity, resilient balance sheet, sound underwriting practices, and a strong growth trajectory since its inception.


This stable outlook rating reflects GCR's expectation that MyCredit Investments Ltd. is evolving and will show strong overall performance metrics over the medium term. GCR further noted that cash flow and leverage was a positive rating factor and business growth is expected to remain steady over the next 12 - 18 months.

Over time, FairMoney Nigeria has significantly grown its loan book whilst showing strong profitability. Non-performing loans have been maintained at a stable yet declining rate over the last year of operations. This is a testament to the company's advanced underwriting practices which has positioned it as the leading digital lender in Nigeria.


Commenting on the ratings, Co-Founder & CEO of FairMoney, Laurin Hainy, affirmed that the ratings reflect FairMoney's resilient business model, international best practices, strong management team and a diversified employee base.


"The milestones achieved since our incorporation within the digital banking space indicates that the Group is on track to achieving its vision of building the leading Neo-bank in emerging markets", he stated.
