Fitch says next few months key to decision on Brazil rating

SAO PAULO, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Fitch Ratings will be in a better position in the next few months to assess Brazil’s political environment, a key element in its decision on whether to strip the country of its investment grade rating, a senior analyst with the agency said on Friday.

Shelly Shetty said in a conference call that an escalation of the political crisis will be negative for Brazil’s rating. The agency on Thursday downgraded the country to BBB-minus, its lowest investment-grade rating, with a negative outlook.
