Moody’s: Licensing of Cyprus’ first credit-acquiring company is credit positive for banks

The licensing by the Central Bank of Cyprus for the selling of loans to B2Kapital Cyprus Ltd. is credit positive for Cypriot banks, Moody’s rating agency has said. “The licencing, the Central Bank’s first, is credit positive because it will enhance debt collection and provide domestic banks another means to reduce their high stock of nonperforming loans,” Moody’s says in a press release.
