Karachi, September 11, 2007: JCR-VIS Credit Rating Company Limited (JCR-VIS) has reaffirmed the Insurer Financial Strength Rating of Century Insurance Company Limited (CICL) at ‘A’ (Single A) with a ‘Stable’ outlook.

CICL has exhibited modest growth in business volumes during FY06 on account of the management’s conscious effort to reduce the proportion of the high risk motor segment in the business mix. In addition to the growth in other business lines, the company is also exploring hitherto untapped segments, with a travel insurance product recently launched by the company. CICL has also made efforts to strengthen its infrastructure by investing in human resources and expanding the network of branches. This is also likely to have a positive impact on business volumes, going forward.

CICL has maintained the sound quality of its reinsurance panel, with the addition of two more companies. It has also made efforts to strengthen its recovery procedures, resulting in reduction in outstanding dues by the close of HY07. Moreover, total yield on the investment portfolio has also improved in the current year, after being depressed in FY06.
