Fitch Publishes Unrated Issuer Report on Ameriprise Financial Inc.
CHICAGO -- October 9, 2013
Fitch Ratings today published an Unrated Issuer Report (UIR) on Ameriprise
Financial Inc. (Ameriprise). 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 Ameriprise's main
credit issues and trends, the report takes a closer look at:
--RiverSource Life Capital
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 an UIR is typically based
primarily on public information, Fitch analysts may ask questions of an
issuer's management while preparing an UIR. The level of management
participation, if any, can vary significantly from case to case.
