AM Best Rating Disclosure

A Best’s Financial Strength Rating opinion addresses the relative ability of an insurer to meet its ongoing insurance obligations. The ratings are not assigned to specific insurance policies or contracts and do not address any other risk, including but not limited to, an insurer’s claims-payment policies or procedures; the ability of the insurer to dispute or deny claims payment on grounds of misrepresentation or fraud; or any specific liability contractually borne by the policy or contract holder. A Best’s Financial Strength Rating is not a recommendation to purchase, hold or terminate any insurance policy, contract or any other financial obligation issued by an insurer, nor does it address the sustainability of any particular policy or contract for a specific purpose or purchaser. In arriving at a rating decision, AM Best relies on third-party audited financial data and/or other information provided to it. Whilst this information is believed to be reliable, AM Best does not independently verify the accuracy or reliability of the information.
