AM Best has commented that the Credit Rating (ratings) of James River Group Holdings, Ltd.

AM Best plans to conclude the analysis of JRG Holdings’ ratings this month and will consider the group’s recent announcement that it has entered into a stock purchase agreement to sell JRG Reinsurance Company Ltd., as well as the error in accounting for reinstatement premium in the company’s previously issued results through June 30, 2023.
