AM Best Places Credit Ratings of ShelterPoint Insurance Company and ShelterPoint Life Insurance Company Under Review With Positive Implications

AM Best has placed 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) of ShelterPoint Insurance Company (SPI) (West Palm Beach, FL) and ShelterPoint Life Insurance Company (SPL) (Garden City, NY). These companies are collectively referred to as ShelterPoint Life.

This Credit Rating (rating) action follows the announcement that Protective Life Corporation (Protective Life), a U.S. subsidiary of Dai-ichi Life Holdings, Inc. [TSE: 8750] and its primary life insurance subsidiary, Protective Life Insurance Company, entered into an agreement to acquire ShelterPoint Group, Inc., the holding company of ShelterPoint Life. The under review with positive implications status reflects the expected benefits ShelterPoint Life will receive from joining Protective Life and the greater financial strength of the organization.

The transaction is expected to close in late 2024. The ratings will likely remain under review pending completion of the acquisition, and until AM Best can complete its assessment of ShelterPoint Life’s post-acquisition rating fundamentals.
