Ratings are impartial, third-party opinions of a company's ability and willingness to meet specific financial obligations. Financial strength ratings assess the ability of the company to meet its obligations to policyholders. Credit ratings assess the ability and willingness of an issuer to meet its financial obligations in accordance with the terms of those obligations.
