AM Best Webinar: Best's Impairment Study 2018

Recorded on Tuesday, June 18, 2019

AM Best analysts reviewed the results published in "Best’s Impairment Rate and Rating Transition Study—1977 to 2018." Panelists reviewed the impairment rates and ratings transitions based on both the Financial Strength Rating (FSR) scale and on the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating (ICR) scale most familiar to users of debt market ratings.

In addition, panelists addressed issues related to comparing AM Best impairment studies to default/impairment studies of other Nationally Recognized Statistical Ratings Organizations (NRSROs). They explained how comparisons between AM Best’s impairment studies and the corporate default studies of other NRSROs should be based on AM Best’s holding company ICRs or their proxies, which are effectively equivalent to AM Best’s senior unsecured debt ratings.

Panelists included:

  • Emmanuel Modu, managing director, AM Best
  • Michael Porcelli, director, AM Best
