CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

http://www.fitchratings.com/creditdesk/reports/report_frame.cfm?rpt_id=719501

Fitch Ratings today published an Unrated Issuer Report (UIR) on Assurant, Inc. UIRs provide analytical perspective and transparency on key issues that impact an organization's creditworthiness but without providing a credit rating or rating-like opinion.

In addition to highlighting what Fitch considers to be Assurant's main credit issues and trends, the report takes a closer look at:

--Profitability;

--Specialty Strategy.

A peer analysis and a summary of market-based indicators round out the UIR.

UIRs are not solicited by the issuer, and Fitch receives no compensation from the issuer for the provision of an UIR. While an UIR is typically based primarily on public information, Fitch analysts may ask questions of an issuer's management while preparing an UIR. The level of management participation, if any, can vary significantly from case to case.
