S&P affirmed its “A-” counterparty credit and financial strength ratings on ASSP, and further said that the “action does not affect the ratings on the holding company, Assurant Inc., or its other operating companies.” S&P credit analyst Shellie Stoddard explained that the “outlook revision follows Assurant’s disclosure that two individuals from the units each received a ‘Wells notice’ from the SEC related to an ongoing investigation of certain loss-mitigation insurance products” (See related article).
