A.M. Best vs. Demotech: You decide

Insurance companies are often rated by Demotech and A.M. Best. They both claim to be superior.  So which one is actually better?

A.M. Best has a 100 year history.  There are no bikers with A.M. Best tattoos, but they must be doing something right.

Demotech is also a force in the ratings war. In 1990 they were acknowledged by Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac.  After hurricane Andrew in 1993, Demotech rose to prominence when they filled a rating void in the southern states.

They both have their fans.  Both are relevant.  That’s why we are especially proud that FIA Surety is highly rated by both!  A.M. Best says Excellent and Demotech says Exceptional!”

Might be an awesome tattoo?

Sub-D Bonds: Like Pulling Teeth?

Cringe when your client’s need subdivision bonds? Why is that? Why is it so hard?

Probably because you’re going to a market that doesn’t write them, or basically dislikes writing them. So getting an approval is like. Well… you know.
