What Are Financial Ratings?

Financial ratings are impartial third-party opinions of an issuer's ability and willingness to meet a specific financial obligation.  There are two types of financial ratings:

  • Financial Strength Rating:  A financial strength rating is an assessment of an insurer's ability to meet its obligations to policyholders.
  • Debt Rating:  A debt rating is an assessment of an issuer's creditworthiness to meet a specific financial obligation (e.g., senior debt, surplus notes, commercial paper, etc.).

Attention!  A rating is not a recommendation to purchase, sell, or hold a financial obligation.
