Aflac Debt Downgraded by Moody’s

Thursday, 22 Sep 2011 06:19 PM


Aflac Inc., the largest seller of supplemental health insurance, was downgraded by Moody’s Investors Service after losses tied to holdings in banks from Greece, Portugal and Ireland.

The senior debt was lowered to A3 from A2, reflecting “continued concerns over the company’s higher than average investment risk appetite,” the ratings firm said Thursday in a statement on the Columbus, Georgia-based insurer.
