A.M. Best Affirms Ratings Of The Chubb Corporation And Its Subsidiaries

Chubb Atlantic’s ratings recognize its solid risk-adjusted capitalization and the implicit and explicit support provided by Chubb Corp. This financial support is evidenced by the capital contributions Chubb Corp. has made in recent years to support Chubb Atlantic’s operations, as well as the business of Chubb Atlantic’s subsidiary, Chubb do Brasil Companhia de Seguros. Furthermore, Chubb Atlantic is the beneficiary of sizable irrevocable letters of credit issued by banks on behalf of Chubb Corp.

The ratings also acknowledge Chubb Atlantic’s strategic importance within the Chubb Group, including its quota share reinsurance assumed from affiliates.

These positive rating factors are partially offset by the volatility in Chubb Atlantic’s underwriting performance in prior years, largely due to adverse loss reserve development.

Chubb Corp.’s debt-to-tangible capital ratio is maintained at a modest 20% as of December 31, 2012. Despite the company’s ongoing share repurchase program, liquid assets at the holding company are expected to be maintained at a level more than sufficient to cover annual holding company expenses.

The FSR of A++ (Superior) and the ICRs of “aa+” have been affirmed for the following property/casualty subsidiaries of The Chubb Corporation:

  • Federal Insurance Company
  • Chubb Custom Insurance Company
  • Chubb Indemnity Insurance Company
  • Chubb Insurance Company of Australia Limited
  • Chubb Insurance Company of Europe SE
  • Chubb Insurance Company of Canada
  • Chubb National Insurance Company
  • Executive Risk Indemnity Inc.
  • Executive Risk Specialty Insurance Company
