According to S&P's assessment the resolution regime is sufficiently effective.

In the announcement S&P states that Landsbankinn's credit rating is unaffected at BBB/A-2 with stable outlook. As the bank now operates under an effective resolution regime, the bank is eligible for a rating uplift in accordance with S&P's methodology on additional loss-absorbing capacity (ALAC).
