Financial strength ratings

A financial strength rating from a credit rating agency is an independent opinion of an insurer's financial strength and ability to meet its ongoing insurance policy and contract obligations. Ratings are based on a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative evaluation of a company's balance sheet strength, operating performance and business profile.
 
Ecclesiastical Insurance Group plc maintains an interactive relationship with credit rating agencies Standard & Poor’s (S&P) and AM Best. The table below lists the current financial strength ratings from each rating agency.
