OLDWICK - SEPTEMBER 11, 2020 01:07 PM (EDT)
AM Best has placed under review with positive implications the Financial Strength Rating (FSR) of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating (Long-Term ICR) of “a-” of CGB Insurance Company (CGB) (Mt. Vernon, IN).

The Credit Rating (rating) action and positive implications reflect the recent announcement that Sompo International Holdings Ltd. with its members being Superior rated will be acquiring CGB. As part of this transaction, CGB becomes part of a larger, more diversified organization with access to capital markets, expanded geographic footprint, enhanced technology and a more sophisticated enterprise risk management platform. AM Best will monitor this transaction closely and resolve the under review status after the close of the transaction, which is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2020.
