A.M. Best Europe – Rating Services Limited has placed under review with positive implications the financial strength rating of B++ (Good) and the issuer credit rating of “bbb+” of InterGlobal Insurance Company Limited (InterGlobal) (United Kingdom), following the announcement of its acquisition by Aetna Global Benefits (Bermuda) Limited, whose ultimate parent is Aetna Inc.

(Aetna) (Hartford, Connecticut, USA). The terms of the transaction, which are yet to be approved by the relevant regulators, have not been disclosed.
