AM Best removed the financial strength rating of “A” (Excellent) and the long-term credit rating of “a” (Excellent) from MAPFRE Insurance Company of Florida (MAPFRE Florida) (Miami, Florida).

AM Best has withdrawn these credit ratings (ratings) as the company has requested to no longer participate in AM Best’s interactive rating process.

MAPFRE Florida is a wholly owned subsidiary of MAPFRE USA Corp.whose ultimate parent is Spainbased at Fundación MAPFRE (MAPFRE).

It is AM Best’s policy that a final grade be completed with a grade withdrawal. However, a final rating could not be made due to the lack of forward-looking financial information necessary to support the formation of a current rating opinion.
