Fitch affirms Bank of Cyprus’s covered bonds at ‘CCC’

Fitch Ratings announced on Monday it has affirmed the rating of Bank of Cyprus’s 1-billion-euro outstanding residential mortgage covered bonds at CCC.

This follows the upgrade of BoC’s long-term issuer default rating (IDR) to CC from RD (Restricted Default) as a result of the lifting of capital controls in Cyprus.
