The Swedish Club is pleased to report that once again S&P Global Ratings has affirmed its ‘A-‘ long-term insurer financial strength and issuer credit ratings for The Swedish Club.
In making its decision, the rating agency pointed to The Swedish Club’s resilient capital position in a volatile year. It also commented on the Club’s disciplined underwriting and risk control, supporting the Club’s controlled underwriting results. The Swedish Club has demonstrated a combined ratio of 98% across a seven-year average, positioning it ahead of its peers.
S&P has also confirmed a stable outlook for the Club, reflecting its view that the Club will continue to preserve its excellent capital adequacy and improve its underwriting performance.
