Fitch: Mexican Non-Bank Financial Institutions Diversify their Funding

MONTERREY, Mexico & NEW YORK--()--According to a new Fitch Ratings Dashboard, Fitch-rated non-bank financial institutions (NBFIs) in Mexico have been able to increase their access to more flexible and institutionalized funding, gradually diversifying their funding mix.

The report also discusses the relevant role development banks play in this segment, the increased participation of commercial banks, more frequent unsecured and secured bond issuances, as well as the main characteristics of the funding sources of rated NBFIs.

Fitch also analyzes some of the weaknesses that prevail in the funding of NBFIs, such as the requirement of pledged assets for the approval of credit lines and the predominantly wholesale nature of their funding sources. The agency believes that the recent conversion of some rated entities to a regulated legal entity could benefit the structure and conditions of their funding base in the medium term.

The 'Mexican NBFIs Funding Dashboard is available on Fitch's website at 'www.fitchratings.com' or by clicking on the link.
