AM Best reviewing Shelter Point Insurance and Shelter Point Life credit ratings with positive implications

AM Best has taken action to place under review with positive implications the Financial Strength Rating (FSR) of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings (Long-Term ICRs) of “a-” (Excellent) for ShelterPoint Insurance Company (SPI) in West Palm Beach, FL, and ShelterPoint Life Insurance Company (SPL) in Garden City, NY. These entities, collectively known as ShelterPoint Life, are currently under review following the recent announcement of an agreement for Protective Life Corporation, a subsidiary of Dai-ichi Life Holdings, Inc. [TSE: 8750], to acquire ShelterPoint Group, Inc., the parent company of ShelterPoint Life.

The under review with positive implications status reflects the anticipated advantages that ShelterPoint Life is expected to gain from becoming a part of Protective Life, along with the enhanced financial strength of the combined organization. The transaction is slated to finalize in late 2024. AM Best will maintain the under review status for the ratings until the acquisition concludes, and the agency completes its assessment of ShelterPoint Life’s rating fundamentals post-acquisition.
