Ratings denoted with a 'pi' subscript are insurer financial strength ratings based on an analysis of published financial information and additional information in the public domain. The ratings do not reflect in-depth meetings with an insurer's management nor do they incorporate material nonpublic information, and are therefore based on less comprehensive information than ratings without a pi subscript. Pi ratings are reviewed annually based on a new year's financial statements, but may be reviewed on an interim basis if a major event that may affect an insurer's financial security occurs.
The pi rating process covers U.S. insurers to which Standard & Poor's previously assigned quantitative ('q') ratings, and may include information beyond that used to derive the previous quantitative-only ratings. Pi ratings are not modified with 'plus' or 'minus' designations, nor are they subject to potential CreditWatch listings, Standard & Poor's said. -- CreditWire
