AM Best Affirms Credit Ratings of TD Reinsurance (Barbados) Inc.



Reading Time: 2 minutes

OLDWICK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AM Best has affirmed the Financial Strength Rating of A
(Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “a+” of TD
Reinsurance (Barbados) Inc. (TD Re) (Barbados). The outlook of these
Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable.

The ratings reflect TD Re’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best
categorizes as very strong, as well as its strong operating performance,
neutral business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

TD Re primarily is a life reinsurer that ultimately is owned by The
Toronto-Dominion Bank (TD Bank). TD Re principally reinsures credit
insurance policies underwritten by third-party life insurance carriers
on consumer loans originated by TD Bank’s Canadian retail branches. In
2017, the company finalized its first general insurance transaction with
another TD Bank subsidiary with a 25% quota share on homeowners and
private passenger auto insurance. Despite this change, the company
continues to have a high return on equity due to favorable underwriting
results on a solid capital base through 2018. Furthermore, the company
maintains a high quality investment portfolio that adequately matches
its liability profile.

These strengths are offset partially by a dependence on Canadian
consumer loan originations for growth and the recent move to take on
what AM Best categorizes as higher risk products in the new general
insurance transaction. While the company’s financial leverage initially
increased as a result of this business change, AM Best notes that the
overall balance sheet strength remains very strong.
