Oldwick //BestWire// - AM Best has assigned a Financial Strength Rating of A-(Excellent) and a Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “a-” (Excellent) to Clear Spring Life Insurance Company (Clear Spring Life) (Austin, TX). The outlook assigned to these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable.

The ratings reflect Clear Spring Life’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best assesses as strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, limited business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

Clear Spring Life’s balance sheet assessment of strong is supported by the company being funded with cash, while maintaining a risk-adjusted capital position that adequately supports several years of expected future growth. While its business profile is limited given the start-up nature of the business and limited product offering through a single direct-to-consumer distribution strategy, AM Best expects the company to maintain an adequate operating performance in the near term. The ratings are supported further by its ultimate parent, Group 1001 Insurance Holdings, LLC, via receiving rating enhancement from its significantly larger lead rating unit, Group 1001 Life & Annuity Group. AM Best expects significant operational synergies from management experience, asset and risk management and actuarial support, as well as committed financial support should the need arise.
