Financial Strength Ratings


Ratings are vitally important to investors, regulators, consumers, insurers and insurance agents/brokers.

 

For instance, insurers use ratings in their advertising to assure buyers of the firm’s strength. Insurance buyers use the ratings in choosing their insurance companies and/or deciding how much they are willing to pay for insurance from particular firms. Brokers and agents will generally not recommend coverage with unrated insurers or insurers with ratings below a particular threshold of financial strength, while many corporate insurance buyers require that all their insurers be highly rated. Strong financial ratings give insurers better access to capital markets.
