Fitch Publishes Unrated Issuer Report on Nationwide

CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--

Fitch Ratings today published an Unrated Issuer Report (UIR) on Nationwide Mutual Insurance Group (Nationwide). UIRs provide analytical perspective and transparency on key issues that impact an organization's creditworthiness but without providing a credit rating or rating-like opinion.

In addition to highlighting what Fitch considers to be Nationwide's main credit issues and trends, the report takes a closer look at:

--Profitability.

A peer analysis and a summary of market-based indicators round out the UIR.

UIRs are not solicited by the issuer, and Fitch receives no compensation from the issuer for the provision of an UIR. While a UIR is typically based primarily on public information, Fitch analysts may ask questions of an issuer's management while preparing a UIR. The level of management participation, if any, can vary significantly from case to case.
