TEXT-Fitch report on rating state-sponsored property insurers
Feb 14 - Fitch Ratings has published a report that addresses its approach to rating debt issued by U.S. state-sponsored property insurance entities (SSPI), titled 'Rating Debt Issued by State-Sponsored Property Insurance Entities.' Fitch has also withdrawn the criteria specific to debt issued by these entities, 'Guidelines for Rating Assessment-Secured Debt Issued by State-Sponsored Property Insurers.' Going forward, Fitch will rate debt issued by SSPIs using either the tax-supported master rating criteria or the insurance rating methodology. The criteria that Fitch uses to rate debt issued by SSPI entities will reflect the nature of the security supporting the bonds. Lead analytical coverage will continue to be assigned to the related Fitch group accordingly. There are no rating changes associated with the withdrawal of the sector specific rating criteria, as this approach is consistent with the framework previously outlined in that criteria.
