Following its regular annual rating review, the rating agency AM Best (Agency) affirmed the financial strength rating of Sava Re of "A" (Excellent) and its long-term issuer credit rating of "a" (Excellent), both with a stable outlook, the Slovenian reinsurer said.

The balance sheet has been assessed as very strong, the operating performance as strong, the impact of the business profile on the ratings as neutral and the enterprise risk management as developed and appropriate to risk profile and operational scope.

Furthermore, the Agency states in its press release that its overall assessment that the balance sheet is very strong is based on the strongest level of risk-adjusted capitalization, the liquid investment portfolio, prudent reserving and good internal capital generation with low reliance on reinsurance, sound financial flexibility and access to equity and debt markets.

In addition, the Agency finds that Sava Re has a track record of generating strong and stable operating results driven by sound non-life and life underwriting performance and supplemented by healthy investment income, despite ever more challenging market conditions.
