The Farmers’ rating reflects the strength of the group’s balance sheet, which AM Best rates as very strong, as well as its notable operating performance, favorable business profile and adequate corporate risk management. Farmers continue to deliver respectable operating results with some volatility associated with the risk of catastrophic losses. Management has taken a number of actions to improve its underwriting performance through targeted pricing actions and risk mitigation strategies, revised product offerings and strengthened underwriting controls. In addition, AM Best believes that the acquisition of MetLife’s asset/casualty business will make a significant contribution to underwriting profitability going forward. Partially offset by these forces are farmers’ high risk of catastrophic losses and reliance on over $2 billion in surplus banknotes.
