AM Best confirms East Africa Re’s rating
AM Best has confirmed East Africa Reinsurance Company’s (EARe) financial strength rating of “B” and long-term credit rating of “bb+”. The outlook for these two ratings is stable.
The rating reflects EARe’s strong balance sheet, adequate operational performance and enterprise risk management. The balance sheet’s strength is assessed by its high level of risk-adjusted capitalization.
In 2019, the Kenyan reinsurer recorded a turnover of 46.5 million USD. The combined ratio was set at 96.5%. The return on equity (ROE) for 2015-2019 amounted to 14.3%.
