Nigerian insurer upgraded

A Nigeria based financial services company’s national scale financial strength rating has been upgraded to AA-(NG) from A(NG), with a stable outlook, by a rating agency.

NEM Insurance has been upgraded on sustained strong through-the-cycle earnings, which consistently trended well above the market average.

The stable outlook reflects the rating agency’s expectation that NEM will continue to defend its market position despite the increasing competitive dynamics.
