PSE Index Soar Above 6,800 After Fitch First Investment Grade Rating

This is another milestone for Philippines Stock Exchange (PSEi) Index and the Philippine economy.  Our 24th record high for 2013 after we received the first ever investment grade debt rating from global credit rating firm Fitch. This could mean an opening of the floodgates of  businesses, investments and job opportunities for Filipinos. Hopefully.

Congrats to all Pinoy! This is the first investment rate grading in history. Let's brag about this and say, "It's really more fun investing in the Philippines!" 

Here's an excerpts from different investment news sites: bloomberg.com and rappler.com:

Philippines Wins First Investment Grade as Aquino Spurs Growth

"The Philippines achieved investment grade for the first time as Fitch Ratings raised its assessment, rewarding President Benigno Aquino for leading a growth resurgence after lagging its regional peers for decades.

The rating on the nation’s long-term foreign currency- denominated debt was raised one level to BBB- from BB+, Fitch said in a statement today. The outlook on the rating is stable.

“The Philippines’ sovereign external balance sheet is considered strong relative to A range peers, let alone BB and BBB category medians,” Fitch said, citing the net external creditor position.

An exit from so-called junk status bolsters Aquino’s drive to transform the nation into one of the region’s fastest-growing economies 15 years after the Asian financial crisis of 1997-98. The upgrade may also boost capital inflows and complicate the job of the central bank as it tries to rein in an appreciating peso and curb asset bubbles."
