Allianz Worldwide Care assigned A+ Superior rating by A.M. Best

December 17, 2015
Allianz Worldwide Care S.A. has welcomed today's designation of a financial strength rating of A+ (Superior) and an issuer credit rating of "aa-" by A.M. Best. The outlook assigned to both ratings is stable. A.M. Best is one of the oldest and most authoritative insurance rating and information sources.  

The ratings are based on a number of key deciding factors, including Allianz Worldwide Care's excellent operating performance, strong risk-adjusted capitalisation and sound risk management framework. A.M. Best's rating also reflects Allianz Worldwide Care's strategic importance to its ultimate parent company, Allianz SE.
"We take financial stability and risk management very seriously at Allianz Worldwide Care and we are delighted to see this reflected in the A.M. Best ratings.

"In the past 15 months, Allianz Worldwide Care has expanded and enhanced its product portfolio, offering not only international health insurance but also life and disability insurance and a range of corporate assistance services."  

"We hope these ratings will enhance the confidence and trust that brokers and clients already have in Allianz Worldwide Care."
The positive ratings also highlight A.M. Best's view that Allianz Worldwide Care is expected to report premium growth of approximately 10% per annum in the medium term. This is supported by growth in new business opportunities, as well as the development of its existing portfolio through an enhanced client offering and digital solutions. 

The ratings agency also believes that as the life and health insurance provider of Allianz Worldwide Partners, Allianz Worldwide Care will play an instrumental role in the expansion plans for the wider group.
