Sovereign risk is B-rated, but is on the cusp of a downgrade, as lower oil prices have hit reserves ratios and raised the financing requirement. Concerns over loose fiscal management persist, despite some adjustment on the spending side. However, foreign credit from China and multilateral lenders, and renewed access to international capital markets following a issuances of US$2bn in June 2014 and US$750m in March 2015, provide some support to the rating.

Dollarisation will partly shield Ecuador from external volatility, although liquidity levels will remain under some pressure from weaker oil prices. Concerns about fiscal management, as well as fluctuations in the level of foreign reserves, sustain a lingering risk that dollarisation may be abandoned.

The banking sector is stable and profitable, supported by relatively firm GDP growth and low levels of non-performing loans. However, rising government intervention will constrain profitability and sustain risks.
