Mon, Dec 3, 2018, 11:13 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 03, Colombo: Fitch Ratings has affirmed and simultaneously withdrawn the National Long-Term Ratings of all rated Sri Lankan insurers as the ratings are no longer considered by Fitch to be relevant to the agency's coverage because the entities have not issued any debt. The issuers' existing National Insurer Financial Strength (IFS) Ratings are unaffected.

Prior to the withdrawal, the National Long-Term Ratings were affirmed with Stable Outlooks as there have been no significant changes in the credit profiles of the rated insurers in Sri Lanka since the previous rating actions on the insurers in 2018.

Fitch continues to rate the insurers with the following IFS Ratings:

- Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation Limited:
IFS Rating 'B+', National IFS Rating 'AA+(lka)' with Stable Outlooks affirmed on 9 July 2018

- National Insurance Trust Fund Board:
National IFS Rating 'AA-(lka)' with Stable Outlook affirmed on 6 September 2018

- People's Insurance PLC:
National IFS Rating 'A+(lka)' with Stable Outlook assigned on 28 February 2018

- HNB Assurance PLC:
National IFS Rating 'A(lka)' with Stable Outlook affirmed on 19 March 2018

- HNB General Insurance Limited:
National IFS Rating 'A(lka)' with Stable Outlook affirmed on 19 March 2018

- Continental Insurance Lanka Limited:
National IFS Rating 'A(lka)' with Stable Outlook affirmed on 27 March 2018
