Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s affirm financial strength


American Family Insurance receives ratings from two new agencies. 

American Family Insurance has received financial strength ratings from two new agencies: Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s (S&P).

Both rating agencies affirmed the company’s financial strength, with Moody’s giving the company an ‘A1’ rating and S&P giving it an ‘A’ rating. The Moody’s ranking is fifth highest out of 21 available ratings and the S&P is sixth highest out of 21 ratings.

“American Family’s A1 insurance financial strength (IFS) rating reflects the company’s established personal lines franchise in the Midwest and growing national presence driven by its active acquisition strategy, a sound balance sheet with conservative financial leverage and a high-quality fixed income portfolio,” said Moody’s in its news release.
