Shenzhen Investment Holdings Co., Ltd. -- Moody's assigns first-time A2 ratings to Shenzhen Investment Holdings

Moody's Investors Service has assigned a first-time A2 issuer rating to Shenzhen Investment Holdings Co., Ltd. (SIHC). SIHC's A2 issuer rating considers its baseline credit assessment (BCA) of baa2 as well as the potential for support in times of stress, based on the assumption of a very high dependence on and high level of support from its local government owner, which results in a rating that is three notches above its BCA. Moody's support assessment reflects SIHC's important role as a key state-owned capital investment company for the Shenzhen Government which owns 100% of the company.
