Standard and Poor’s raises Covéa Insurance’s financial strength rating

10th December 2015

Covéa Insurance is pleased to confirm that its Standard and Poor’s (S&P) financial strength rating has been upgraded to A+ stable. The rationale behind the upgrade reflects the rating agency’s opinion on the group’s improving performance, which covers Covéa Group and its guaranteed companies.

The rating action reflects the solid operational risk profile on the back of successful growth of the group, its position in response to regulatory changes and the continuing prudent and profitable growth, whilst maintaining strong capital adequacy.
The A+ rating with a stable outlook is further affirmation of the Company’s stability, giving their brokers and partners added confidence in their long-term ability to deliver high quality products and service.

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 policyholders, generating over 16.5 billion Euros in premium in 2014.
