Creditreform Rating has set the rating of the public sector covered bonds of UniCredit Bank Austria AG at "watch neutral". This is primarily due to the issuer rating, which is also set at "watch (unknown)". In the wake of the Russian-Ukrainian war, the "stable" outlook of the issuer is withdrawn and "watch (unknown)" status is assigned in light of this development. Should any changes occur to the rating in the future, we will update them accordingly during monitoring.
