AM Best Assigns Credit Ratings to New Members of Builders Insurance Group

OLDWICK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#insuranceAM Best has assigned a Financial Strength Rating (FSR) of A (Excellent) and Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings (Long-Term ICRs) of “a” (Excellent) to the new members of Builders Insurance Group. The new members include Crossroads Insurance Company (CIC), Georgia Builders Insurance Company (GBIC) and United Builders Insurance Company (UBIC). The outlook assigned to these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable. All companies are headquartered in Atlanta, GA.


The ratings reflect on a consolidated basis, Builders Insurance Group’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best assesses as very strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, neutral business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

CIC, GBIC and UBIC are considered part of the Builders Insurance Group rating unit based on operational support, strategic importance to the group’s strategy, and explicit support provided through an intercompany reinsurance agreement. CIC, GBIC and UBIC are owned fully by Builders Insurance (An Association Captive Company), and the parent maintains ultimate senior management responsibility for the companies. Currently, CIC, GBIC and UBIC are not writing business actively, but Builders Insurance Group plans to use these newer entities for its expansion plans in the near term. As a result, Builders Insurance Group’s ratings have been extended to CIC, GBIC and UBIC.

The ratings of established members of the Builders Insurance Group remain unchanged with an FSR of A (Excellent) and Long-Term ICRs of “a” (Excellent), each with a stable outlook.
