WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Few companies are able to stand the test of time and maintain an outstanding financial performance spanning nearly three decades.
With sound business practices in place and an ongoing commitment to providing customers with exceptional products and services, GEICO has notched a spot on Ward Group’s 2017 list of 50 top performing insurance companies. GEICO is one of only a few companies to have earned a top 50 designation for 27 consecutive years.
“The ability to remain in this position for more than two decades is a remarkable achievement in our company’s history and demonstrates a high-level of trustworthiness from our growing customer base,” said Bill Roberts, GEICO president and chief operating officer. “We are proud to be recognized by The Ward Group as a top performing insurance company.”
To develop its annual top 50 list, Ward Group analyzes the financial performance of nearly 3,000 property and casualty insurance companies domiciled in the U.S., and identifies the top performers over the previous five year period (2012-2016).
Jeff Rieder, partner, head of Ward Group mentioned that low investment returns, rising loss costs, and competitive market conditions continue to impact financial returns for the industry. “In selecting the Ward’s 50, we identified companies that pass financial stability requirements and measure their ability to grow while maintaining strong capital positions and underwriting results,” said Rieder.
