The credit score rankings of R&Q Insurance coverage Holdings and its rated subsidiaries have been positioned below assessment with adverse implications, following the group’s revelation that its board is strategic choices to separate R&Q’s program administration and legacy insurance coverage companies.
In an announcement by AM Finest, the score company stated: “AM Finest has positioned below assessment with adverse implications the monetary energy score of A- (glorious) and the long-term issuer credit score rankings (long-term ICR) of ‘a-‘ (glorious) of Accredited Surety and Casualty Firm, Inc. (ASC), Accredited Specialty Insurance coverage Firm (ASI), and Accredited Insurance coverage (Europe) Restricted (AIEL).
“Concurrently, AM Finest has positioned below assessment with adverse implications the long-term ICR of ‘bbb-’ (good) of R&Q Insurance coverage Holdings Ltd, the non-operating holding firm of the group. ASC, ASI, and AIEL are wholly owned subsidiaries of R&Q.”
Based on AM Finest, it had beforehand thought of the abovementioned Accredited corporations to be strategically necessary to the group and it’ll now study the influence of the deliberate cut up on their score fundamentals.
The credit standing company added: “The anticipated working loss for 2022, pushed by R&Q’s legacy operations, will doubtless result in a cloth weakening of the group’s risk-adjusted capitalisation, as measured by Finest’s Capital Adequacy Ratio.
