Covéa Insurance's financial strength rating upgraded

16th December 2014

Covéa Insurance is pleased to confirm that its Standard and Poor’s (S&P) outlook rating has been upgraded to A ‘Positive.’ The rationale behind the rating upgrade is given in S&Ps latest research report, which covers Covéa Group and its guaranteed companies.

The rating action reflects the view that the management across the combined Covéa group of companies is successfully building on the group’s already strong business risk profile and very strong financial profile.

It is suggested that if the Covéa Group continues to grow prudently and profitably whilst maintaining its strong capital adequacy, S&P may be in a position to further increase this rating within the next 12-24 months.

Covéa Insurance is a UK based guaranteed subsidiary of Covéa. Covéa is the leading French mutual insurance group that provides protection to more than 11 million people. Its turnover in 2013 was 15.5 billion Euros.
