Moodys Investors Solutions outlook modification to negative on Mexicos
local-currency and foreign-currency A3 sovereign bond ratings
on 31 March 2016. (See news release titled Moodys modifications Mexicos
outlook to negative from stable; affirms A3 score).

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moodys said that the stable outlook on 16 Mexican insurance companies reflects that,.
despite the fact that a lot of insurance companies financial investment exposure to the sovereign is considerable,.
their financial strength ratings are well placed. Moreover,.
a prospective downgrade of the Mexican sovereign bond score is not most likely.
to put down pressure on the insurers credit profile.
Moodys notes that Mexican insurance companies broadly take advantage of really modest.
reliance on debt financing and financing and their liquidity positions are.
fairly strong, given good premium income streams and the relative.
lack of credit-sensitivity of insurance coverage premiums broadly.
The insurers likewise benefit from their success and from the internal.
capital generation that derivesoriginates from insurance underwriting, as.
well as financial investment activities. These factors to consider broadly support.
rating stability of the sector.

The following 14 insurance providers GLC and NS IFS scores were affirmed.

Their outlooks stay stable:.

– Afianzadora Aserta: Baa2/Aa2. mx.

– Afianzadora Insurgentes: Baa2/Aa2. mx.

– Afianzadora Punto Aserta: Baa2/Aa2. mx.

РAseguradora Patrimonial Da̱os.: Ba1/A1. mx.

– Aserta Seguros Vida: Ba1/A1. mx.

– Chubb de M xico Compañía de Seguros:.
Baa1/Aa1. mx.

– Coface Seguro de Cr dito M xico: Baa1/Aa1. mx.

– Dentegra Seguros Dentales: Baa3/Aa3. mx.

– Strategy Seguro: Baa3/Aa3. mx.

– Primero Fianzas: Baa1/Aa1. mx.

– Prudential Seguros M xico: Baa2/Aa2. mx.

РSeguros Azteca Da̱os: Ba1/Aa3. mx.

revised to steady, from favorable:.

– ACE Fianzas Monterrey: Baa1/Aa1. mx.

– Chubb de M xico Compañía Afianzadora:.
Baa1/Aa1. mx.

The rationale for the shift to a steady outlook for ACE Fianzas Monterrey.
and Chubb de M xico Compañía Afianzadora shows.
that the favorable pattern observed in their credit profiles relative to.
other Baa1 credits is more than offset by the current unfavorable outlook.
on the Mexican sovereign, offered the companies direct financial investment.
exposure to sovereign and regional assets, in addition to their certain.
level of sensitivity to the financial cycle and other macroeconomic/financial trends.
in the nation.

MBIA M xico:.

that MBIA Mexicos ratings are based mostly on the explicit and implicit.
assistance provided by MBIA Insurance Corporation (MBIA Corp.,.
B3 IFS, review for downgrade). As such, MBIA Mexicos.
scores are anticipated to continue to be carefully linked to its moms and dad.

Amongst the elements that might result in a score downgrade for the 16 above.
mentioned insurance companies are: 1) a multi-notch downgrade of the.
Mexican sovereign bond rating; 2) degeneration of the countrys.
running environment; and 3) impairment in business possession.
quality, earnings or capital adequacy. Alternatively,.
elements that could result in an upgrade consist of improved capital adequacy.
and earnings metrics for insurers, in addition to an improvement.
in Mexicos operating environment and/or sovereign bonds.
score.

In the case of MBIA Mexico, Moodys said that its ratings could.
be downgraded if developments associated with the Zohar transactions decrease.
MBIA Corp. s capital adequacy position and resultlead to the further.
stress on the business liquidity profile. Given the companys.
ratings are under review for downgrade, an upgrade is unlikely.
However, MBIA Mexicos ratings might be updated if MBIA Corps.
liquidity position enhanced materially or the outcome of the Zohar I bankruptcy.
proceedings point to a more beneficial result for MBIA Corp.
