AM Best Assigns Preliminary Credit Assessment to Vista L&C Capital Solutions, LLC

September 29, 2021 GMT

OLDWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 29, 2021--

AM Best has assigned a Preliminary Credit Assessment (PCA) to Vista L&C Capital Solutions, LLC (Shelburne, Vermont) with a Financial Strength Assessment of B++ pca (Good) and a Long-Term Issuer Credit Assessment of “bbb+”pca (Good). The outlook assigned to these PCAs is stable.

The PCA reflects Vista’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best assesses as strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, limited business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

The ratings reflect Vista’s expected initial capital of $50 million. It also reflects the company’s minimal asset risk. The company plans on assuming pension risk transfer longevity risk only; earnings will be a function of assumed biometric risk and not dependent on investment performance.

The company has a unique proposition offering and it feels confident about its ability to source transactions from various distribution partners. The company also has deep expertise in longevity risk modeling at the management level as well as on the board of its capital providers. The product risk is fairly low, as there is one main assumption of interest: longevity. However, the offering is untested.
