Nicaragua - Credit Rating at 32.50  
S&P Global Ratings lowered on Friday 9 November 2018 Nicaragua's sovereign credit rating to "B-" from "B" with negative outlook. It is the second time in less that four months that S&P cut the country's rating. The move reflected a deterioration in fiscal and financial conditions generated by the current political crisis. In particular, limited access to financing with declining foreign exchange reserves highlights the vulnerability to potential external liquidity pressures. Additionally, the agency warned that the rating could be lowered within the next 12 months if the government fails to stanch the loss of dollar liquidity in the economy. S&P expect Nicaragua's fiscal position to weaken as the government will run larger fiscal deficits in 2018-2019 because of the economic downturn and the drop in tax revenues. Moody's credit rating for Nicaragua was last set at B2 with stable outlook. Fitch's credit rating for Nicaragua was last reported at B with negative outlook.
