The rating reflects the Insurer’s adequate capitalisation, good liquidity profile and experienced management team. The rating is however constrained by a weak underwriting profit margin compared to peers, investment management that requires some improvement and the fragile state of the economy due to the lingering COVID-19 pandemic and the mutations.
