As stated in its report which was issued on April 19, 2022, Standard & Poor's assigned Tawuniya a (A-) rating based on the strengths that the company has, most notably the strong competitive position, the capital adequacy ratio, and the strong financial performance supported by the profitable underwriting and investment income.
Standard & Poor's confirmed that the stable outlook reflects its view that Tawuniya will maintain its strong operating performance and competitive position, while gradually improving its capital adequacy over the next two years.
Mr. Abdulaziz H. Al-Boug, Tawuniya’s CEO, expressed his pride in this global rating, which confirms the company's financial strength and capabilities to provide high standard insurance protection to all individuals and corporates, as well as its ability to fulfill its obligations towards all customers and stakeholders.
"The rating assigned by S&P also reflects Tawuniya’s position as the leading company in the Saudi insurance market, the company's strategic vision, its ability to develop programs and services, and its possession of a diversified insurance portfolio, in addition to its possession of a strong IT infrastructure that helps Tauwniya succeed and grow year after year," Al-Boug added.
