KBRA’s affirmation of the ratings for the Republic of Chile reflects the sovereign’s small, open, and diversified economy, and its strong and stable institutions, while sound macroeconomic policies, which centre on fiscal savings through sovereign wealth funds, bolster resiliency. The Stable Outlook balances the strengths of Chile’s economy and its resilience to shock against the weak global geopolitical and macroeconomic environment. Chile’s credit profile is underpinned by strong access to liquidity through its capital markets and sovereign wealth funds. KBRA acknowledges that there is a large degree of uncertainty surrounding the political environment and the government's reform programme. The Stable Outlook also reflects Chile’s fiscal resiliency through successive external shocks and the sovereign’s ability to quickly correct its public finances through policy discipline.
