A.M. Best Revises Outlooks to Positive for Benchmark Insurance Company

A.M. Best has revised the outlooks to positive from stable and affirmed the Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings of "a-" of Benchmark Insurance Co. (Benchmark) (Topeka, KS).

The Credit Ratings (ratings) of Benchmark reflect its balance sheet strength, which A.M. Best categorizes as very strong, as well as its strong operating performance, limited business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

The revised outlooks to positive from stable are based on Benchmark's strong operating performance and increased risk-adjusted capitalization driven by steadily increasing underwriting earnings and net investment income. Benchmark's balance sheet strength is supported by risk-adjusted capitalization being at the strongest level, favorable loss reserving trends in recent years, a prudent investment portfolio and strong liquidity and cash flow measures.
