A.M. BestTV: Risk, Not Rules, Becoming Driver of Asian Regulation, Says Megrow Pte Managing Director

OLDWICK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In this A.M.BestTV episode, Reto Brosi, managing director, Megrow Pte Ltd., explores issues surrounding the move toward risk-based capital regulatory structures in Asian countries such as Singapore, the Philippines, Thailand and China. Click on http://www.ambest.com/v.asp?v=brosi517 to view the entire program.

Hong Kong has initiated steps to boost its risk-based capital framework.

“In Asia, specifically in Hong Kong, cyber risk is at the forefront,” said Brosi. “What I mean by forefront is in terms of opportunities and threats. It is important that risk regulations reflect this so that companies are prepared to convert this risk into business, helping their customers and making sure that they are stable and can manage their enterprise risk management.”

Brosi also addressed the issue of Hong Kong’s new risk-based capital (RBC) framework.

“I am a great supporter of moving from rule-based supervision to a more risk-adequate RBC-type of framework. That is a global trend. Different markets use slightly different means and details, but the global trend is there. I think it is crucial that Hong Kong, as a leading financial center, does not fall behind.”

A.M. Best Places Credit Ratings of Santa Lucía S.A. Compañía de Seguros y Reaseguros Under Review With Developing Implications

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A.M. Best has placed under review with developing implications the Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “a-” of Santa Lucía S.A. Compañía de Seguros y Reaseguros (Santa Lucia) (Spain), the operating holding company of the Santa Lucia group.

The Credit Ratings (ratings) action follows the announcement on 10 May 2017, of the acquisition of Aviva Vida y Pensiones, S.A. de Seguros y Reaseguros and Aviva’s 50% stake in pension joint ventures, Unicorp Vida, Compañía de Seguros y Reaseguros, S.A. and Caja España Vida, Compañía de Seguros y Reaseguros SA, by Santa Lucía. The transaction is subject to regulatory and antitrust approvals, and A.M. Best expects it to close in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The under review with developing implications status reflects that while the acquisition is anticipated to improve Santa Lucía’s market profile and enhance underlying earnings, it is expected to weaken the company’s balance sheet strength over the short term. Furthermore, the significance of the transaction creates execution risk, and its successfulness will be dependent on the company’s ability to integrate a material life operation into its profile.

A.M. Best will continue to monitor the impact of the transaction on Santa Lucía’s ratings fundamentals and expects the under review with developing implications status to be resolved following a comprehensive review once the acquisition is completed.

This press release relates to Credit Ratings that have been published on A.M. Best’s website. For all rating information relating to the release and pertinent disclosures, including details of the office responsible for issuing each of the individual ratings referenced in this release, please see A.M. Best’s Recent Rating Activity web page. For additional information regarding the use and limitations of Credit Rating opinions, please view Understanding Best’s Credit Ratings.
