S&P Global Ratings on Jan. 16 assigned brAAA/brA-1+ long- and short-term issuer credit ratings as well as brAAA national scale financial capacity rating to Brazil's Sompo Seguros SA.
The ratings reflect Sompo Seguros' position as a highly strategic subsidiary for parent Sompo Holdings Inc. The rating agency expects Sompo Seguros to receive support from its parent under almost all situations except in the event of a default by the Brazilian government.
The ratings also reflect the rating agency's view on the insurer's operation, which involves several lines of business; its profitability metrics that are slightly below local peers; and its efficient capitalization level.
