Clal Credit Insurance — Moody's announces completion of a periodic review of ratings of Clal Credit Insurance – Yahoo Finance

Announcement of Periodic Review: Moody's announces completion of a periodic review of ratings of Clal Credit InsuranceGlobal Credit Research – 24 Jan 2022London, 24 January 2022 — Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") has completed a periodic review of the ratings of Clal Credit Insurance and other ratings that are associated with the same analytical unit. The review was conducted through a portfolio review discussion held on 17 January 2022 in which Moody's reassessed the appropriateness of the ratings in the context of the relevant principal methodology(ies), recent developments, and a comparison of the financial and operating profile to similarly rated peers. The review did not involve a rating committee. Since 1 January 2019, Moody's practice has been to issue a press release following each periodic review to announce its completion.This publication does not announce a credit rating action and is not an indication of whether or not a credit rating action is likely in the near future. Credit ratings and outlook/review status cannot be changed in a portfolio review and hence are not impacted by this announcement. For any credit ratings referenced in this publication, please see the ratings tab on the issuer/entity page on www.moodys.com for the most updated credit rating action information and rating history.Key rating considerations are summarized below.The A3 IFSR of Clal reflects its strong market position in Israel, very good underwriting flexibility, strong capitalisation and good underwriting profitability through the-cycle. In addition, Clal benefits from affiliation with the Atradius group the second largest global credit insurer, which holds a minority stake in Clal and provides significant reinsurance capacity. These strengths are partially offset by Clal's small market share relative to its global credit insurance peers and concentrated exposure to the Israeli market, which elevates Clal's susceptibility to the risk of significant financial distress in Israel. Clal is majority owned by Clal Insurance Company — one of the largest multi-line insurance group's in Israel.This document summarizes Moody's view as of the publication date and will not be updated until the next periodic review announcement, which will incorporate material changes in credit circumstances (if any) during the intervening period.The principal methodology used for this review was Trade Credit Insurers Methodology published in November 2019. Please see the Rating Methodologies page on www.moodys.com for a copy of this methodology.This announcement applies only to EU rated, UK rated, EU endorsed and UK endorsed ratings. Non EU rated, non UK rated, non EU endorsed and non UK endorsed ratings may be referenced above to the extent necessary, if they are part of the same analytical unit.This publication does not announce a credit rating action. For any credit ratings referenced in this publication, please see the ratings tab on the issuer/entity page on www.moodys.com for the most updated credit rating action information and rating history.
