CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: Insurance-Linked Securities Methodology
Fitch Ratings has published its periodic review and update of its methodology for rating insurance-linked securities. This report replaces the criteria of the same title published in August, 2012.
The updates consist of eliminating redundant language, clarifying the interpretation of its calibration matrix and modernizing a few sections to reflect market trends. These changes had no rating effect on any current and outstanding issues rating by Fitch.
The Insurance-Linked Securities Methodology is a sector-specific rating criteria so it also draws on other criteria from the Structured Finance and Insurance in developing the rating.
The full report "Insurance-Linked Securities Methodology" is freely available on the Fitch Ratings website at www.fitchratings.com.
