“Ward Group recognizes Acuity for achieving outstanding financial results in the areas of safety, consistency, and performance,” said Jeffrey J. Rieder, partner and head of Ward Group. “From 2000 through 2016, Acuity demonstrated its ability to consistently generate outstanding results.”
“Acuity’s continued recognition by Ward Group as a top performer matters to everyone who depends on us—our employees, independent agents, and the individuals, families, and businesses who are our customers,” said Ben Salzmann, Acuity President and CEO. "Being part of the Ward's 50 for 17 straight years is a testament to our shared success.”
Ward Group is the leading provider of benchmarking and best practices studies for insurance companies. To develop its annual list of the 50 top-performing insurers, Ward Group analyzes the financial performance of over 3,000 property-casualty insurance companies domiciled in the United States based on objective data and quality measures. Top performers have passed all safety and consistency tests and achieved superior performance over a five-year period.
Year after year, Acuity has outperformed the industry, and the company did so again in 2015, growing its revenue 7 percent while recording a combined ratio of just 93.0, nearly 7 points better than the industry. Acuity has achieved a combined ratio under 100 for five straight years and is on track to continue its record of financial and operational success in 2016.
