AM Best to Host Webinar on Best’s Impairment Study 2018

OLDWICK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AM Best analysts will review the results published in “Best’s
Impairment Rate and Rating Transition Study—1977 to 2018,” during a
webinar on Tuesday, June 18, 2019, at 10 a.m. (EDT). Panelists will
review the impairment rates and ratings transitions based on both the
financial strength rating (FSR) and the long-term issuer credit rating
(ICR) scales, which are most familiar to users of debt market ratings.

In addition, panelists will address issues related to comparing AM Best
impairment studies to default/impairment studies of other National
Recognized Statistical Ratings Organizations (NRSRO). They will explain
how comparisons between AM Best’s impairment studies and the corporate
default studies of other NRSROs should be based on AM Best’s holding
company ICRs or their proxies, which are effectively equivalent to AM
Best’s senior unsecured debt ratings.

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
