KBRA Releases Research – Coronavirus (COVID-19): Battle-Tested Assured Guaranty Grapples With the Pandemic

Kroll Bond Rating Agency (KBRA) releases research focusing on the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the bond insurance industry. The unprecedented scale and scope of the contagion will undoubtedly provide a real-world stress test of the financial strength of Assured Guaranty Ltd. (AGL) and its subsidiaries (collectively, Assured) rated by KBRA.
