Moody's downgrades ratings on 10 German banks   2011-11-17 19:10:38FeedbackPrintRSS

BERLIN, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- Moody's Investors Service late Wednesday downgraded the ratings on debt and deposit of 10 German public-sector banks.
The judgement was based upon recent EU rules to restricte financial aid to bank, together with a bank resolution scheme adopted in Germany.
The rating downgrading is reportedly irrelevant to the ongoing euro zone debts crisis. It is linked to the newly-adopted regulation in Germany which reduced remarkably the chances of banks to obtain external support and restrictions on support set out by the European Commission, according to Carola Schuler, a managing director on Moody's banking team.
Moody's downgraded DekaBank Deutsche Girozentrale by one notch, while three banks -- Landesbank Hessen-Thueringen GZ, Landesbank Saar and HSH Nordbank AG -- were downgraded two notches, and BayernLB and Deutsche Hypo, both had their ratings lowered by three notches to "Baa1" from "A1."
