Founded in 1899, A.M. Best Company is the world’s oldest and most authoritative insurance rating and information source.
A.M. Best Co. is requesting comments from market participants in the insurance industry and other interested parties on the draft of its new criteria report, “Rating Surety Companies.”
Although surety insurance companies are analyzed in a similar way to other property/casualty (P/C) insurers, their unique characteristics require additional analysis during the rating evaluation. The criteria report highlights some of the major categories of surety insurance written by insurers rated by A.M. Best and describes some of the additional analysis performed beyond that of a typical P/C writer. This criteria report is not expected to have a material effect on ratings.

Written comments should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 4, 2013.
