On January 6, 2014, Fitch Ratings affirmed an ‘A’ Insurer Financial Strength (IFS) ratings to Wilton Reassurance Company, Wilton Reinsurance Bermuda Limited, Wilton Reassurance Life Company of New York and Texas Life Insurance Company (collectively referred to as Wilton Re). At the same time, Fitch has affirmed a long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) of ‘BBB+’ to Wilton Re Holdings Limited. The Rating Outlook is Stable.
