Community Housing Capital is pleased to announce its recent credit rating assignment by S&P Global Ratings, a leading provider of credit ratings, has assigned CHC a ‘AA-’ rating with a stable outlook. S&P highlighted in their report, “Key strengths of CHC’s ICR include their capital adequacy, profitability, and our view of management. The stable outlook reflects S&P Global ratings view that CHC’s financial strength will remain in line with the current rating through near-term periods of balance sheet growth”.

Additionally, Fitch Ratings assigned Community Housing Capital an ‘A+’ rating with a stable outlook. Regarding the rating, Fitch stated, “This reflects CHC’s strong revenue defensibility and stable operating risk profiles, which are bolstered by ongoing demand, effective oversight, as well as solid financial performance.”
