Best (A++ rating affirmed as of July 16, 2020), Fitch (AAA rating affirmed as of April 29, 2020) and Standard & Poor's (AA+ rating affirmed as of August, 18, 2020) and the second highest possible rating from Moody’s Investors Service (Aa1 rating affirmed as of June 1, 2020).  There is no guarantee that current ratings will be maintained.
