Synovus Receives Ratings Upgrade and Boost in Outlook from S&P
 

Standard and Poor’s (S&P) has announced the decision to upgrade our long-term and short-term issuer default ratings by one level each, and improve our outlook from “negative” to “positive.”   This news has just been released publicly by S&P, and we wanted to make sure our team heard this encouraging announcement as soon as possible. 
 
This action comes only two weeks after Fitch Ratings also revised its outlook on Synovus from “negative” to “positive.”
 
Ratings agencies provide assistance to investors by offering opinions of the safety and soundness of a particular security.  The ratings are based on reviews of performance, business plans, and the confidence the agencies have in the leadership of the companies they review.
