S&P Global Ratings on Oct. 23 upgraded the global scale financial strength and issuer credit ratings of Mexico's AXA Seguros S.A. de C.V., to A from A-, with a negative outlook.
The upgrade came as the ratings now consider the company's high strategic importance as a subsidiary of the AXA Group, the rating agency said.
The negative outlook, meanwhile, reflects S&P Global Ratings' view on Mexico.
The rating agency also affirmed the "mxAAA" national scale rating on both the insurer and its AXA Salud SA de C.V. operating subsidiary.
