AM Best Maintains Under Review Status for Credit Ratings of Insignia Life S.A. de C.V. With Implications Revised to Developing from Negative

AM Best has maintained the under review status and revised the implications to developing from negative for the Financial Strength Rating of B (Fair), the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating to “bb” (Fair) and the Mexico National Scale Rating to “a.MX” (Excellent) of Insignia Life S.A. de C.V. (Insignia) (Mexico) following the announcement that it will be acquired by Grupo MAPFRE.

These Credit Ratings (ratings) reflect Insignia’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best assesses as strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, neutral business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

The proposed acquisition has the potential to alleviate AM Best’s ongoing concern regarding the financial situation of Insignia’s parent company, Proyecto Insignia S.A.P.I de C.V., and its effects on the financial strength of Insignia. The under review with developing implications status reflects that this transaction is still in its early stages and requires regulatory approval from Mexico’s regulator, the Comisión Nacional De Seguros y Fianzas (CNSF). The ratings will remain under review until AM Best can fully assess the financial and operational impacts of the acquisition.

This rating action is the result of an accepted appeal from Insignia Life S.A de C.V.
