LONDON–(COMMERCIAL WIRE)–I am better has assigned a Financial Strength Rating of A (Excellent) and a Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “a+” (Excellent) to RSA Insurance Ireland DAC (RSAI Ireland) (Ireland), RSA Luxembourg SA (RSAL) (Luxembourg) , Royal & Sun Alliance Reinsurance Limited (RSA Re) (UK) and The Marine Insurance Company Limited (MIC) (UK). All four entities are wholly owned subsidiaries of RSA Insurance Group Limited (RSA), a non-operating holding company ultimately owned by Intact Financial Corporation (IFC). The outlook assigned to these Credit Ratings is stable.

The ratings reflect the strength of RSA’s consolidated balance sheet, which AM Best assesses as very strong, as well as the group’s adequate operating performance, neutral business profile and adequate management of business risk. The ratings also consider, in the form of a lift, the support of its parent company, IFC. The ratings of RSAI Ireland, RSAL and RSA Re take into account their strategic importance and their integration within the RSA group; MIC’s ratings take into account the significant reinsurance support it receives from Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Limited (RSAI), an affiliated company.

RSAI Ireland offers personal and business insurance predominantly in Ireland. It is strategically important to RSA and makes an important contribution to the group’s business profile. RSAI Ireland benefits from intra-group reinsurance support from RSAI in the form of a significant share agreement of 90% on long tail lines and 50% on short tail lines, after third party reinsurance.
