German Insurer Nuernberger Insurance Group #A-# Ratings Affirmed, Then Withdrawn At Company#s Request Stcoks—17 Oct 17

FRANKFURT--17 Oct--S&P Global Ratings

FRANKFURT (S&P Global Ratings) Oct. 17, 2017--S&P Global Ratings today affirmed its 'A-' long-term insurer financial strength and counterparty credit ratings on Nuernberger Lebensversicherung AG and Nuernberger Allgemeine Versicherungs-AG, the core operating entities of Germany-based Nuernberger Insurance Group (NBG). We also affirmed our 'BBB' counterparty credit rating on NBG's non-operating holding company Nuernberger Beteiligungs-AG. We subsequently withdrew all ratings at the group's request. At the time of withdrawal, the outlook on the ratings was stable.

The affirmation reflects our view of the group's strong business risk profile thanks to a favorable life insurance business mix relative to German peers, with a longstanding focus on unit-linked and disability products, and its benefits from the contribution of its property and casualty (P/C) business. We believe earnings will be supported by sound risk results in the life segment (contributing more than 50% to the overall life gross surplus) and a healthy underwriting performance in the P/C segment, based on a net combined (loss and expense) ratio of 95.5% at end-2016 and 92.0% for the first half of 2017. Overall, net income for 2016 was €59 million, compared with €42 million for the first half of 2017. We generally view the
