Fitch maintains MAPFRE’s insurer financial strength rating
The rating agency explains in its note that MAPFRE’s business profile “compares favorably with other insurance groups based in Europe. MAPFRE has a very strong market position in Spain, where it is the leader in the non-life segment, and in Latin America, especially in Brazil. ”
Regarding the impact of covid on the company’s balance sheet, Fitch observes risks derived from an increase in credit spreads and on the evolution of the short-term investment portfolio. However, Fitch expects the overall impact of the coronavirus to be “manageable for MAPFRE due to its strong capital position”, and expects MAPRE’s technical profitability to remain “strong”.
