AM Best has placed under review with developing implications the Financial Strength Rating (FSR) of A (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating (Long-Term ICR) of “a” (Excellent) of the members of Constellation Insurance Group (Constellation) (Minneapolis, MN).

The Credit Ratings (ratings) were placed under review with developing implications following the announcement that Constellation has signed a merger agreement with Curi Holdings, Inc. (Curi).

AM Best will continue to monitor the transaction and evaluate the impacts on members of the group. This merger is subject to all customary closing conditions, including member and regulatory approvals, and expected to be completed in the second half of 2023.

The FSR of A (Excellent) and the Long-Term ICRs of “a” (Excellent) have been placed under review with developing implications for the following members of Constellation Insurance Group:
