A.M. Best A (Excellent) Rating for 2016

Bel Air, MD – Harford Mutual Insurance announced that insurance ratings agency A.M. Best Co. has reaffirmed a financial strength rating of A (Excellent) and an Issuer Credit Rating (ICR) “a” with a Stable outlook for 2016. “Maintaining an A (Excellent) rating during a challenging economic, insurance marketplace and investment climate is a positive accomplishment and critical to our agency partners and policyholders,” said Steve Linkous, President/CEO.  Linkous credits the positive rating factors as a result of management’s initiated focus on underwriting discipline, loss control, price monitoring, risk aggregation, reserving methodology, internal controls and technology to better service agents and customers.
