AM Best affirms Coralisle Group’s financial strength following Massy United Insurance acquisition

AM Best has removed Coralisle Group Ltd.’s subsidiaries (“CG” or the “Group”) from ‘under review with developing implications’ and affirmed CG’s credit rating following its acquisition of Barbados based Massy United Insurance Ltd (“United Insurance”) on May 4, 2022.

AM Best affirmed CG’s Financial Strength Rating of “A” (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings of “a” for the Group’s Life/Health and Property/Casualty subsidiaries.

The outlook assigned to these Credit Ratings is stable. Concurrently, AM Best has removed from under review with developing implications and affirmed the
Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “a-” (Excellent)
of United Insurance. The outlook assigned to these ratings is positive.

United Insurance now operates
within the Coralisle Group as CG United Insurance Ltd. (CG United).

AM Best noted that, with the addition of United Insurance operations in 14 new jurisdictions, CG now expands its presence across the Caribbean with potential for cross-selling complementary health products, additional scale in its growing property business and synergies in revenue and expense components of the combined income statement.

Best further noted that the United Insurance acquisition aligned with CG’s strategy ‘to balance its health operations with its property/casualty business across numerous Caribbean operations.’

‘We are very pleased with Best’s assessment of Coralisle Group,’ Naz Farrow, CG’s Chief Executive
Officer, said. ‘It’s a positive report that reflects sound strategy, prudent planning, best business practices and teamwork. With our new colleagues at CG United, we are well-positioned to continue growing toward becoming the insurer of choice in the Caribbean.’

The reviews of Coralisle and United Insurance were based on operating performance, business profile,
risk management and balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorized as ‘strongest’.

In affirming CG’s ratings, Best assigned an outlook of ‘stable’ for the following CG subsidiaries:

• Coralisle Insurance (BVI) Ltd.
• British Caymanian Insurance Company Limited
• Coralisle Insurance Company Ltd.
