Fitch raises Volkswagen’s forecast to positive; The evaluation has been confirmed
Ratings agency Fitch has become more confident about Volkswagen’s credit rating. Raised the outlook to positive from stable. The Default Long Term Issuer Rating (IDR) confirmed with BBB +.
In their justification, the analysts mainly emphasize the fact that corporate governance is once again a better practice.
