Expert RA once again confirms PPF Life Insurance’s A++ reliability rating
Expert RA, Russia’s rating agency, once again confirmed PPF Life Insurance’s reliability rating at А++, giving it top marks for its strong reliability and its stable outlook.
The rating was positively influenced by the high level of current liquidity (131% as at 1 April 2013), adjusted net insurance liquidity (119.3% as at 1 April 2013), and a low net loss ratio for its property and casualty insurance (1.4% for 2012).
Natalia Danzurun, Deputy Head of the Insurer Rating Department at Expert RA, said: “We rate the liquidity, stability and reliability of the company’s investment portfolio as high (the share of investments in entities rated at А++ based on Expert RA’s criteria and/or with similar ratings by other international agencies exceeded 80% on 31 December 2012 and 25 March 2013). The company has an advanced risk management system in place.” The agency’s experts particularly value the high level of geographic diversity of the company’s business (with the geographic diversification ratio at 0.03 in 2012).
PPF Life Insurance is a life insurer with a nationwide reach. Its core businesses include savings and pension life insurance, as well as casualty and sickness insurance.
