AM Best has assigned a Long-Term Issue Credit Rating of "bbb-" to the recently announced $600 million 6.0% non-cumulative preferred stock issued by Markel Corporation (Markel) (Glen Allen, VA) [NYSE: MKL]. The outlook assigned to this Credit Rating (rating) is stable.
Global insurers are well capitalized to absorb the hit from rising claims and costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic, ratings agency AM Best said on Monday, citing a stress test it conducted to gauge the immediate impact of outbreak on insurers' financial strength. AM Best said most rated insurers and reinsurers performed well in its stress test and their capital levels provided an adequate buffer against a potential shock to their balance sheets. Sensitivity to the COVID-19 pandemic was greater for life and health insurers with high asset and mortality risks, insurers with material exposures to mortgage loans, carriers operating in domiciles in higher country-risk tiers and companies with smaller capital bases.
