A.M. Best Revises Outlook of Issuer Credit Ratings of Fremont Insurance Company and Fremont Michigan InsuraCorp
Wednesday January 30, 4:30 pm ET


OLDWICK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A.M. Best Co. has affirmed the issuer credit rating (ICR) of “bbb” and the financial strength rating (FSR) of B++ (Good) of Fremont Insurance Company (Fremont) (PNK: FMMH). The outlook for the ICR has been revised to positive from stable, while the outlook for the FSR remains stable. A.M. Best also has affirmed the ICR of “bb” of Fremont’s holding company, Fremont Michigan InsuraCorp, Inc, and revised the outlook to positive from stable. Both companies are domiciled in Fremont, MI.

The ratings reflect Fremont’s well-established market presence as a writer of personal lines insurance in Michigan, strong capitalization, improved overall operating results, tightened underwriting guidelines and expansion into less catastrophe-prone areas of Michigan.

These favorable rating factors are offset by Fremont’s somewhat elevated net premium leverage and the risks inherent in the company's geographic concentration in Michigan, which may subject it to weather-related loss exposure, potentially adverse legal and regulatory conditions, as well as competitive market pressures.
