Our financial strength rating

As a requirement of section 65 of the Insurance (Prudential Supervision) Act 2010, VPIS is required to disclose to policyholders when entering into a contract or renewing a contract of insurance that VPIS is not required to have a current financial strength rating. This is because VPIS is included in a class of insurers that is exempt under section 238(1)(1)(ii) of the Insurance (Prudential Supervision) Act 2010.
