RAM Ratings has withdrawn the AA1/Stable rating of Etiqa Family Takaful Berhad’s (EFTB) RM300 million Subordinated Sukuk Musharakah (2014/2024) following the exercise of a call option to fully redeem the Sukuk on 30 May 2019. At the same time, we have withdrawn the AAA/Stable/P1 insurer financial strength ratings of Etiqa General Insurance Berhad (EGIB) and EFTB upon the request of the entities. EGIB had exercised the call option to fully redeem its RM500 million Subordinated Bonds on 5 July 2018. Accordingly, we no longer have any rating obligation in respect of the two entities.

 Date of release: 30 May 2019

The credit rating is not a recommendation to purchase, sell or hold a security, inasmuch as it does not comment on the security’s market price or its suitability for a particular investor, nor does it involve any audit by RAM Ratings. The credit rating also does not reflect the legality and enforceability of financial obligations.

RAM Ratings receives compensation for its rating services, normally paid by the issuers of such securities or the rated entity, and sometimes third parties participating in marketing the securities, insurers, guarantors, other obligors, underwriters, etc. The receipt of this compensation has no influence on RAM Ratings’ credit opinions or other analytical processes. In all instances, RAM Ratings is committed to preserving the objectivity, integrity and independence of its ratings. Rating fees are communicated to clients prior to the issuance of rating opinions. While RAM Ratings reserves the right to disseminate the ratings, it receives no payment for doing so, except for subscriptions to its publications.

Similarly, the disclaimers above also apply to RAM Ratings’ credit-related analyses and commentaries, where relevant.
