Master Elite Insurance Logo_(green)Elite Insurance has announced that the company has beeen assigned an IFS rating of BBB- by Fitch.

The key rating drivers behind the rating decision name adequate capitalisation, strong underwriting performance and a conservative investment strategy, among them. Strong corporate governance also features highly.

The announcement comes after over 10 years of operating in the insurance market without a rating. CEO, Jason Smart said “Despite the negative press often targeted at unrated insurers, as a business we have gone from strength to strength, never finding our lack of a rating a barrier to business. However, this reflects the true strength of our business and there is no doubt a rating at this time will give us a further competitive edge, opening up the market even more to us. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the brilliant team at Elite as well as our business partners who have shared in, and made possible, our successes”.

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency – a digital currency that uses cryptographic techniques to regulate the generation of units and to verify the transfer of funds. It is largely anonymous and unregulated, and underpinned by a digital ledger technology known as blockchain. In terms of the market, there is a limit of 21m Bitcoin that can ever be created. It is very narrowly held, with an estimated 40% of Bitcoin held by just 1,000 ‘investors’ and only a third having been traded in the last year. However, there are also a number of synthetic products through which one can gain access to Bitcoin, including contracts for difference, ETFs (exchange-traded funds) and, as of December, exchange-traded futures.
