    Creditreform Rating downgraded its solicited SME issue rating of the corporate bond of HFS Helvetic Financial Services AG (HFS) with ISIN DE000A186WC7 from BB+ to BB. The adjustment is based solely on the development of the HFS SME issuer rating with the same determination date. Despite the installed equity covenants, the non-subordinated and unsecured bond has only a small number of creditor protection mechanisms, therefore a negative notching of one notch compared to the unsolicited SME issuer rating was applied. Similar to the SME issuer rating, the rating outlook is stable.
