A.M. Best Affirms Credit Ratings of Nippon Life Insurance Company and Its Subsidiary

HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A.M. Best has affirmed the Financial Strength Rating (FSR) of A+ (Superior) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating (Long-Term ICR) of “aa-” of Nippon Life Insurance Company (Nissay) (Japan). The outlook of these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable. Concurrently, A.M. Best has affirmed the FSR of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term ICR of “a-” of Nippon Life Insurance Company of America (NLB) (Des Moines, Iowa, USA). The outlook of these ratings is positive.


The ratings reflect Nissay’s balance sheet strength, which A.M. Best categorizes as very strong, as well as its strong operating performance, favorable business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management (ERM).

The company’s level of balance sheet strength is underpinned by a risk-adjusted capitalization that A.M. Best views as the strongest possible, which is supported by modest underwriting leverage and a conservative investment portfolio. The company’s capital requirements, as measured by Best’s Capital Adequacy Ratio (BCAR), continue to be driven by asset risk due to its sizeable investment assets relative to its capital and surplus. Also, the company keeps a modest gap between asset and liability durations. Nissay’s financial leverage remains adequate for the current ratings.

Nissay reports a stable trend in premium income in terms of annualized premium equivalent, with growth in new sales over the past five years resulting from the company’s effort to shift toward the sale of protection-type products that offer a stable mortality margin. The company reports a moderate level of volatility in its operating results, which are susceptible to financial market conditions.

While Nissay maintained a market share of 18% – the largest among its peers and one which has remained stable over the long term – its geographic diversification remains modest given the relatively small size of the international operations.

Nissay is well-positioned at its current rating level. Negative rating actions could occur if there is material deterioration in risk-adjusted capitalization caused by substantial investment losses, or sustained deterioration in its operating performance.

The ratings of NLB reflect its balance sheet strength, which A.M. Best categorizes as strongest, as well as its marginal operating performance, very limited business profile and appropriate ERM.

The affirmation of NLB’s ratings considers the financial and operational support received from its parent company (Nissay) and NLB’s strategic importance to the parent, risk-adjusted capitalization being at the strongest level, and its evolving business diversification strategy. The company continues to maintain an established market position in the Asian markets within the United States. Further, NLB intends to build its ancillary business segment including group dental, life, disability and vision, as well as administrative services. NLB’s rating also considers Nissay’s financial strength and NLB’s strategic importance to its parent.

However, A.M. Best notes that NLB’s business remains concentrated in the group major medical market and in certain states. The group major medical market is highly competitive and the company has experienced volatility within this segment in recent years. Additionally, NLB also faces the challenges of complying with medical loss ratio requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A.M. Best will continue to monitor the impact of the ACA on NLB’s strategy and operating results over the near-term.

Ratings are communicated to rated entities prior to publication. Unless stated otherwise, the ratings were not amended subsequent to that communication.

Dejun Qian, Founder of BitSE, Creates One of the Most Promising Blockchain Projects of 2018: FUSION

The South-East Asia tech influencer and thought leader has founded a new blockchain project that is establishing a public blockchain in order to break the bottlenecks of interoperability and scalability


SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#blockchain--FUSION (http://FUSION.org/), the project that is establishing an inclusive cryptofinance platform that will break the bottlenecks of interoperability and scalability in order to provide a full set of financial functions, is unveiling today its founding team. One of the founders is Dejuan (DJ) Qian, Founder of BitSE, one of the earliest teams researching and developing blockchain technology.

FUSION, currently in stealth mode, is working on a solution for the scalability and usability problems within the various blockchain ecosystems, since current cryptocurrencies have only achieved limited functions of a complete cryptofinance ecosystem. With its solution, FUSION will allow all non-inherent blockchain assets to be a part of the chain by tokenizing such off-chain assets as on-chain tokens and making them execute and transact within smart contracts.

Founded by DJ, BitSE is one of the earliest teams researching and developing blockchain technology, as the company has started its ASIC mining chip design in 2014, owning the earliest and largest mining center in China. Since then, DJ and the team have launched two high profile blockchain projects: QTUM (https://qtum.org/en/) and VeChain (https://www.vechain.com/). In 2016, BitSE was selected as one of the “Top 10 FinTech Startups” and “The powerful blockchain infrastructure of the year” by Caishi China. DJ was selected as the most Innovative CEO of that year for ‘Jiepu Prize’.

“As one of the early adaptors, I’m excited to see how 2017 brought blockchain technology to the mainstream financial conversation,” says DJ Qian, Founder at FUSION. “2018 is the right time to begin seeing the scene as mature and recognized. We can now start thinking about next steps, including how to bring non-inherent blockchain assets to the chain. That’s exactly what we’re planning to do.”

About FUSION:
Founded in 2017, FUSION provides an inclusive solution for integrating cryptocurrencies that exist today and ones that will be issued in the future by connecting centralized and decentralized organizations, balancing authentication and anonymity, and integrating both on-chain and off-chain data. FUSION utilizes distributed network nodes to control various types of tokens’ private keys, and establishes a control and management layer on top of different types of blockchains.

A.M. Best Affirms Credit Ratings of New India Assurance Company Limited

SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A.M. Best has affirmed the Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “a-” of New India Assurance Company Limited (New India) (India). The outlook of these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable.


The ratings reflect New India’s balance sheet strength, which A.M. Best categorizes as very strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, favorable business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

New India’s balance sheet strength reflects solid risk-adjusted capitalization that is supported by low underwriting leverage. Its capital and surplus is by far the largest among all non-life insurers in India, standing at INR 359 billion (USD 5.5 billion) as of March 31, 2017. The favorable business profile reflects the company’s solid market position; New India is the largest non-life insurer in India, with a clear lead in almost every line of business. In addition, the company’s business is diversified by geography and line of business, both within India and overseas.

Offsetting rating factors include the susceptibility of New India’s capital position to volatility in India’s stock market, since fair value reserves account for a large portion of its capital. In addition, the company’s operating ratio (pre-tax results before gains and losses from investments) was unfavorable in the two years prior to March 2017. Although there was improvement during the first half of fiscal year 2018, it remains to be seen whether this can be maintained. Nevertheless, the company’s total comprehensive income has been positive due to favorable movements in its equity investments.

Positive rating momentum could result from New India showing a consistent and improving trend in its underwriting and operating performance, while maintaining its very strong risk-adjusted capitalization.

Conversely, negative rating actions could occur if the company’s risk-adjusted capitalization declines to a level below A.M. Best’s expectation, or if its operating performance deteriorates significantly.

Ratings are communicated to rated entities prior to publication. Unless stated otherwise, the ratings were not amended subsequent to that communication.

A.M. Best Affirms Credit Ratings of The Hollard Insurance Company Pty Ltd

HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A.M. Best has affirmed the Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “a-” of The Hollard Insurance Company Pty Ltd (HIC) (Australia). The outlook of these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable.


The ratings reflect HIC’s balance sheet strength, which A.M. Best categorizes as strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, neutral business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management (ERM).

HIC’s level of balance sheet strength is reflective mainly of its equity investments and moderate underwriting leverage. In addition, A.M. Best expects HIC to remain consistently profitable, based on a product portfolio that includes mostly pet health insurance, as well as domestic home and motor insurance in Australia. Relative to its historical average, HIC has performed modestly in recent years, largely owing to poor claims experience as a result of catastrophes and slower-than-expected growth in certain lines of business. Nevertheless, A.M. Best believes the company’s focus on profitable growth, along with its remedial underwriting actions, will help it maintain positive overall earnings on an ongoing basis.

As a niche insurer, HIC has a market share of less than 2% in Australia. Nevertheless, the company has good market positions in some niche segments within its domestic insurance market, primarily in short-tail insurance products. In addition, HIC has established a diversified network of distribution partners, which allows it to pursue further growth across different products and channels, in personal and commercial lines business.

A.M. Best’s assessment that HIC’s ERM is appropriate is based on the company’s current size and risk profile. Despite a complex business model, HIC has demonstrated an overall good ability to address most of its risks, primarily through underwriting, risk selection, reinsurance and sound operating controls. Therefore, A.M. Best considers HIC’s risk management capabilities to be aligned appropriately with its risk profile.

Key factors that could lead to negative rating actions include inadequate product pricing that results in material deviations from the expected improvement in operating performance or risk-adjusted capitalization. Additionally, downward ratings pressure may arise if there is diminished capital support from HIC’s parent entities.

Ratings are communicated to rated entities prior to publication. Unless stated otherwise, the ratings were not amended subsequent to that communication.

ISTANBUL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Turkcell (NYSE:TKC) (BIST:TCELL) has become a member of 3GPP, the most influential global organization in developing the standards in 5G, which is targeted for commercial launch in 2020. By becoming a member of 3GPP, Turkcell will assume an active role aiming at remarkable contributions in the development phases of 5G, viewed as the technology of the future. Turkcell’s many years of experience will be instrumental in 5G standardization activities along with other global players.

Turkcell (NYSE:TKC) (BIST:TCELL) prepares to leave its mark on 2018 with a major and exciting step forward in the technology field. On its path to rapidly becoming the world’s first global digital operator, Turkcell will be involved in the standardization work of 5G, which is the next generation wireless technology after 4G, together with other major global corporations in the field.

We aim to be a pioneer in 5G

Pointing to the infrastructure preparation work on 5G that has been underway for a while, Turkcell CEO Kaan Terzioğlu spoke as follows: “As Turkey’s Turkcell we are proud to be a pioneer in several fields concerning 5G. We reached record speeds in one of the world’s first 5G tests, which took place under the roof of Turkcell. To lay the groundwork for Turkey to be a major player in the field, we are engaged in scientific cooperation with universities and are continuing to support the leading efforts of BTK (Information and Communication Technologies Authority), all aimed at making Turkey one of the first countries to implement 5G. We have gained valuable experience in infrastructure and product deployment, service development, making network improvements, and offering the latest technologies, by cooperating with global players.

Instead, we aspire to be a producer, a company involved in the development activities as a leader, and are continuing to work steadily towards that goal.
