According to Fitch, MRT is of great importance to the MNRB Group (KUL:MNRB).
The agency said it could raise MRT's rating, if its strategic importance to the MNRB Group increases further or if its standalone credit profile improves significantly.

Group's subsidiaries would exert pressure on Malaysian Re's risk-adjusted capitalisation.
30 November 2010 - MARC today maintained its AA-IS rating with a "negative" outlook on MNRB Holdings Berhad's (KUL:MNRB) MYR200m (USD63m/EUR48m) Islamic Medium Term Notes (IMTN).
MNRB is an investment holding company primarily engaged in the general reinsurance sector through core unit Malaysian Reinsurance Berhad, which generates 76% of the group's income and largely determines the holding company's overall credit quality.
The "negative" outlook is based on MNRB's weak cash flow and liquidity as well as high level of double leverage.
