 Rating Report │ April 28, 2022  1  Banks  Bank Holding Companies  Bermuda  Credicorp Ltd.  Update  Key Rating Drivers  IDRs Driven by Main Subsidiary’s IDRs: Credicorp Ltd.’s (Credicorp) IDRs are driven primarily by the IDR of its main subsidiary, Banco de Credito del Peru (BCP), which has a strong business and financial profile. Credicorp’s Foreign Currency Long-Term IDR of ‘BBB’ with a Stable Rating Outlook is equalized to BCP’s rating.  Low Double Leverage: The equalization is mainly driven by Credicorp’s low double leverage and its strong liquidity management. Double leverage is low and reached 101.8% (similar to that of YE 2020, 100.32%). There is a long track record of significant dividend flows that provide the bulk of Credicorp’s liquidity.  Strong Corporate Strategy: Credicorp is a non-operating holding company that maintains an integrated business platform composed of leading Peruvian and Bolivian banking, insurance, pension, and asset and wealth management companies.  Consistent Performance: Credicorp’s capital structure benefits from its subsidiaries’ profitability, which allows Credicorp to maintain consistent dividend flows. Asset quality ratios on a consolidated basis were: 90-days impaired loans to total loan ratio at YE 2021 was 2.85% (YE 2020: 2.78%) and reserve coverage was 201.7% (YE 2020: 258.2%).  Improving Profitability: Consolidated profitability is improving but still far from pre-pandemic levels (ROAE and ROAA at YE 2021: 14.26% and 1.50%, respectively).  Senior Debt: The senior global debt rating is at the same level as Credicorp’s Long-Term IDRs of ‘BBB+’, as the likelihood of default of the notes is the same as that of Credicorp.  Rating Sensitivities  Factors that could, individually or collectively, lead to negative rating action/downgrade:      Credicorp’s IDRs would remain at the same level as BCP’s and would move in tandem with any rating actions on its main operating subsidiary. However, the relativity between these two entities’ ratings could also be affected and the holding company downgraded, in the event of a material and sustained increase in Credicorp’s double- leverage metrics (above 1.2x), and if Fitch perceives a material weakening of the holding company’s liquidity position and its management.  Additionally, a change in the dividend flows from the operating companies or debt levels at the holding company that affects its debt coverage ratios could also be detrimental to its ratings.  The ratings for Credicorp’s senior unsecured debt would move in line with Credicorp’s Long-Term IDR.  Factors that could, individually or collectively, lead to positive rating action/upgrade:  Credicorp Ltd.’s ratings would move in tandem with positive rating actions on its main operating subsidiary, BCP.  Ratings  Foreign Currency  Long-Term IDR  BBB  Short-Term IDR  F2  Sovereign Risk ( Peru)  Long-Term  Foreign-Currency IDR  BBB  Long-Term Local-Currency IDR  BBB  Country Ceiling  BBB+  Outlooks  Long-Term  Foreign-Currency IDR  Stable  Sovereign Long-Term Foreign-Currency IDR  Stable  Sovereign Long-Term Local-Currency IDR  Stable  Applicable Criteria  Bank Rating Criteria (November 2021)  Related Research  Weakening Governance a Risk for Peru Economy, Ratings (March 2022)  Analysts  Stoll, Robert  +1 212 908 9155  Marquez, Andres  +57 601 484 6771

Fitch believes the credit profile of Credicorp’s main subsidiary is sensitive to a material deterioration in the local OE or a negative sovereign rating action. Pressure in the OE includes a slow recovery of the GDP due to greater political uncertainty and the challenging investment and business environment.  Brief Company Summary  Credicorp is the largest Peruvian financial holding company, a Bermuda-based non-operating holding company listed on the Lima and New York stock exchanges. Credicorp in turn is widely held by the Romero family.  Credicorp’s structure comprises a solid universal banking, insurance and pension platform that serves mainly Peru, complemented by a growing presence in microfinance, investment banking, and wealth management in the Andean Region. The entity does not utilize double leverage as it has no structural debt, and short-term debt regularly rolls over.  While based in Bermuda for strategic reasons, it operates mainly through its six subsidiaries: Banco de Credito del Peru (BCP) (BBB/Sta), the largest bank in the Peruvian Banking System with an asset market share of around 30%, Banco de Credito de Bolivia (BCB) (B/Sta), the sixth largest bank in Bolivia by loans and fifth largest bank by deposits, Grupo Pacifico, a leading player in the health insurance segment, Prima AFP, a pension management business, Atlantic Security Bank (ASP), wealth management, and Credicorp Capital Investment banking. In addition, Credicorp is a regional leader in microfinance through Mibanco in Peru and Colombia.  The shareholder structure is as follows: 87.06% private and institutional Investors and 12.94% Romero Family. The bulk of the dividend income of Credicorp comes from BCP. BCP’s business model consists of being a universal bank with a well-diversified loan portfolio that generates interest income and recurrent fee income.  Credicorp has a very experienced, stable and deep management team with a strong track record of having steered subsidiaries through the rapid expansion years and challenging operating environments along with new challenges such as digital transformation and the recent coronavirus crisis. Management of Credicorp is in the hands of the executive team of BCP, whose directors also sit on the broader board of directors of Credicorp. Management has clearly stated that they are in charge of all the obligations of the group and that they plan and act to ensure that every entity (from the holding company down) will always be able to fulfil its financial commitments.  The board of directors has nine members elected for repeatable three-year tenures, of which five members are independent. SEC/NYSE regulation requires that the majority of Credicorp’s directors be independent and the same structure has been applied to BCP. A number of directors previously held senior management roles. Board members have high-level backgrounds in capital markets, private equity, mining and other sectors.

 Banks  Bank Holding Companies  Bermuda  strengthen the board governance role and ensure oversight of internal control and risk management. The compliance officer and the bank’s audit division report directly to the board  Strategy focuses on improving efficiency, conservative risk management and efficient growth while improving client experience through digital transformation. Growth in retail segments is expected to be higher than the wholesale segments due to increasing competition for corporate loans. In the retail segment, the plans are to increase cross-selling through digital selling and data analytics.  Conservative risk appetite has enabled a track record of low levels of impairments and charge offs at its main subsidiary level. The asset quality ratio on a consolidated basis was strong: the impaired loans to total loan ratios at YE21 was low at 2.85% (YE 2020: 2.78%) and reserve coverage was at 201.4% (YE20: 258.2%).  Consolidated profitability at Dec. 31, 2020 was affected by higher loan impairment charges, with ROAE and ROAA at 1.35% and 0.16%, but it is returning to historical levels (YE21: 14.26% and 1.50% respectively). Fitch expects to return to pre-COVID levels before 2022-end.  Consolidated tangible common equity to tangible assets improved to 10.03% at YE21 (up from 9.70% at YE20) and it is expected to return to pre-pandemic levels in 2022. Consolidated liquidity and funding metrics remain satisfactory as the loans to customer deposits ratio at YE21 totaled 99.05%, (YE20: 97.52% and Average 2017-2019: 105.19%).  Unconsolidated Leverage, Debt Service and Double Leverage:  Credicorp’s unconsolidated balance sheet is very simple, as it basically has cash and investments on one side and unsecured debt and capital on the other. Credicorp maintains enough cash and liquid investments on hand to cover its outstanding debt, minimizing the risk of declining dividend inflows. In Fitch’s opinion, Credicorp’s conservative liquidity management is seen as a positive factor when analyzing its stand-alone unconsolidated leverage and profile.  Credicorp’s double leverage remained below the 120% threshold and reached 101.8% (similar to that of YE20, 100.32%). Solid internal capital generation should underpin Credicorp’s double leverage and debt coverage ratios.  Credicorp Ltd.  Rating Report │ April 28, 2022  2

Red (5) is most relevant and green (1) is least relevant.  The Environmental (E), Social (S) and Governance (G) tables break out the individual components of the scale. The right-hand box shows the aggregate E, S, or G score. General Issues are relevant across all markets with Sector-Specific Issues unique to a particular industry group. Scores are assigned to each sector- specific issue. These scores signify the credit-relevance of the sector-specific issues to the issuing entity’s overall credit rating. The Reference box highlights the factor(s) within which the corresponding ESG issues are captured in Fitch’s credit analysis.  The Credit-Relevant ESG Derivation table shows the overall ESG score. This score signifies the credit relevance of combined E, S and G issues to the entity’s credit rating. The three columns to the left of the overall ESG score summarize the issuing entity’s sub- component ESG scores. The box on the far left identifies some of the main ESG issues that are drivers or potential drivers of the issuing entity’s credit rating (corresponding with scores of 3, 4 or 5) and provides a brief explanation for the score.  Classification of ESG issues has been developed from Fitch’s sector ratings criteria. The General Issues and Sector-Specific Issues draw on the classification standards published by the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).  Sector references in the scale definitions below refer to Sector as displayed in the Sector Details box on page 1 of the navigator.  CREDIT-RELEVANT ESG SCALE  How relevant are E, S and G issues to the overall credit rating?  G Scale  Overall ESG Scale  1  5  4  3  Reference  S Scale  Reference  Business Profile (incl.

Details of permissible or ancillary service(s) for which the lead analyst is based in an ESMA- or FCA-registered Fitch Ratings company (or branch of such a company) can be found on the entity summary page for this issuer on the Fitch Ratings website.  In issuing and maintaining its ratings and in making other reports (including forecast information), Fitch relies on factual information it receives from issuers and underwriters and from other sources Fitch believes to be credible. Fitch conducts a reasonable investigation of the factual information relied upon by it in accordance with its ratings methodology, and obtains reasonable verification of that information from independent sources, to the extent such sources are available for a given security or in a given jurisdiction. The manner of Fitch’s factual investigation and the scope of the third-party verification it obtains will vary depending on the nature of the rated security and its issuer, the requirements and practices in the jurisdiction in which the rated security is offered and sold and/or the issuer is located, the availability and nature of relevant public information, access to the management of the issuer and its advisers, the availability of pre-existing third-party verifications such as audit reports, agreed-upon procedures letters, appraisals, actuarial reports, engineering reports, legal opinions and other reports provided by third parties, the availability of independent and competent third- party verification sources with respect to the particular security or in the particular jurisdiction of the issuer, and a variety of other factors. Users of Fitch’s ratings and reports should understand that neither an enhanced factual investigation nor any third-party verification can ensure that all of the information Fitch relies on in connection with a rating or a report will be accurate and complete. Ultimately, the issuer and its advisers are responsible for the accuracy of the information they provide to Fitch and to the market in offering documents and other reports. In issuing its ratings and its reports, Fitch must rely on the work of experts, including independent auditors with respect to financial statements and attorneys with respect to legal and tax matters. Further, ratings and forecasts of financial and other information are inherently forward-looking and embody assumptions and predictions about future events that by their nature cannot be verified as facts. As a result, despite any verification of current facts, ratings and forecasts can be affected by future events or conditions that were not anticipated at the time a rating or forecast was issued or affirmed.  The information in this report is provided “as is” without any representation or warranty of any kind, and Fitch does not represent or warrant that the report or any of its contents will meet any of the requirements of a recipient of the report. A Fitch rating is an opinion as to the creditworthiness of a security. This opinion and reports made by Fitch are based on established criteria and methodologies that Fitch is continuously evaluating and updating. Therefore, ratings and reports are the collective work product of Fitch and no individual, or group of individuals, is solely responsible for a rating or a report. The rating does not address the risk of loss due to risks other than credit risk, unless such risk is specifically mentioned. Fitch is not engaged in the offer or sale of any security. All Fitch reports have shared authorship. Individuals identified in a Fitch report were involved in, but are not solely responsible for, the opinions stated therein. The individuals are named for contact purposes only. A report providing a Fitch rating is neither a prospectus nor a substitute for the information assembl ed, verified and presented to investors by the issuer and its agents in connection with the sale of the securities. Ratings may be changed or withdrawn at any time for any reason in the sole discretion of Fitch. Fitch does not provide investment advice of any sort. Ratings are not a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold any security. Ratings do not comment on the adequacy of market price, the suitability of any security for a particular investor, or the tax-exempt nature or taxability of payments made in respect to any security. Fitch receives fees from issuers, insurers, guarantors, other obligors, and underwriters for rating securities. Such fees generally vary from US$1,000 to US$750,000 (or the applicable currency equivalent) per issue. In certain cases, Fitch will rate all or a number of issues issued by a particular issuer, or insured or guaranteed by a particular insurer or guarantor, for a single annual fee.
