- July 27, 2021 04:28 PM (EDT)
Oldwick //BestWire// - AM Best has placed under review with positive implications the Financial Strength Rating of B++ (Good) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “bbb+” (Good) of the two operating subsidiaries of Nagico Holdings Limited – National General Insurance Corporation (NAGICO) N.V. (St. Maarten) and Nagico Insurance Company Limited (Anguilla) (collectively referred to as Nagico).
This Credit Rating (rating) action follows Nagico’s announcement on July 27, 2021 that the group has entered into a definitive agreement whereby Peak Reinsurance Company Limited (Peak Re) will acquire the remaining 50% of Nagico’s outstanding shares. Peak Re currently owns 50% of Nagico.
The positive implications status reflects AM Best’s expectation that Nagico will benefit from the financial strength of Peak Re as it integrates into the group. The transaction is targeted to close prior to the end of 2021.
The ratings will remain under review until the transaction closes, all customary regulatory approvals are received and AM Best evaluates Nagico’s role in the Peak Re organization.
