Allianz Australia Insurance Ltd. Ratings Affirmed At #AA-#; Outlook Stable Stcoks—10 Nov 17

SYDNEY--10 Nov--S&P Global Ratings

SYDNEY (S&P Global Ratings) Nov. 10, 2017--S&P Global Ratings today said it has affirmed its 'AA-' financial strength and issuer credit ratings on Allianz Australia Insurance Ltd. (Allianz Australia). The outlook is stable.

We expect Allianz Australia to remain a highly strategically important subsidiary of Allianz SE (AA/Stable/A-1+), the insurer's ultimate parent. The ratings on highly strategically important subsidiaries benefit from expected group support under our group rating methodology and the final rating on Alliance Australia benefits from three notches of support above the insurer's stand-alone credit profile (SACP) of 'a-'. The benefit for subsidiaries that we assess as highly strategic to the group is limited to one notch below the group credit profile (GCP).

Underpinning Allianz Australia's SACP is its solid business profile across key property and casualty (P&C) market segments as one of Australia's top four P&C insurers. Also supportive of its stand-alone credit strength is its history of operating performance, which is in line with domestic peers.

We have assessed Allianz Australia's financial risk profile as sound taking into account the capital adequacy that we assess at a 'BBB' level under our insurance capital model. We also expect support from
