Gasunie’s financial goal is to guarantee its access to national and international money markets and capital markets and to be able to choose from a broad range of possible financial instruments. Having adequate credit ratings is essential to achieving this goal. For this reason Gasunie pursues a financial policy that aims to meet the financial criteria applied by the rating agencies.
The company’s financial policy aims to reduce financial risk at minimal cost. Derivative financial instruments such as swaps and other derivatives are only applied in order to reduce risks and are explicitly not permitted for the purpose of creating speculative positions.
