Dexia is striving to keep its triple-A rating by injecting $300 million into Financial Security Assurance, the US bond-insurance unit of the Belgian-French financial group. Dexia said it also plans to stop writing policies on complex-structured debt. Credit-rating agencies previously threatened to downgrade FSA, but after the capital injection and show of financial support from Dexia, Fitch Ratings affirmed FSA's triple-A rating.
