AM Best to Host Webinar on Rating Captive Insurers: The Interactive Rating Process From Data Analysis to Rating Committee Decision

LONDON--()--AM Best will host a complimentary webinar on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 15:00 (BST). Worldwide, AM Best rates more than 200 captives and alternative risk transfer (ART) vehicles, from its position as the largest credit rating agency specializing only in the insurance industry. As a leading rating agency of alternative risk transfer entities, AM Best publishes ratings on captives spanning domiciles from the United States to Asia.

How does AM Best analyze a captive? What are the key considerations for captives’ financial strength? In this webinar, senior insurance credit rating analysts will outline the AM Best methodology applicable to ART vehicles with a showcase of the rating process, based on a generic fictitious captive structure. This will be followed by a sample rating committee discussion, leading to the assignment of a Best’s rating to the fictitious captive considered.

Since AM Best’s unique perspective on captive ratings means that captives are assessed on a case-by-case basis, AM Best analysts will explain why the creditworthiness of a captive’s parent is only one of the many factors considered to determine the captive’s rating, which can appeal to captive owners facing challenging operating environment.
