DUBAI - Standard and Poor's (S&P) ratings services assigned its 'BBB' long term counterparty credit and insurer financial strength ratings to Bahrain- based reinsurer Arab Insurance Group (BSC) (ARIG), according to rating agency the outlook is stable. The ratings are based on the group's good competitive position in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and very strong capitalisation, offset by adequate operating performance.
