Rockingham Group Affirmed at Aʹ (A Prime), Unsurpassed by Demotech, Inc.

Columbus, Ohio, May 6, 2024: Each member of Rockingham Mutual Group, Inc., Rockingham Insurance Company, Rockingham Casualty Company, and Rockingham Specialty, Inc., has earned and had affirmed its Financial Stability Rating® (FSR) of Aʹ (A Prime), Unsurpassed. This FSR is assigned to insurers who possess unsurpassed financial stability related to maintaining positive surplus as regards policyholders, liquidity of invested assets, an acceptable level of financial leverage, reasonable loss and loss adjustment expense reserves (L&LAE) and realistic pricing. 

According to Joseph Petrelli, President, Demotech, Inc., “Each member of the group has a strong balance sheet that is protected by an enterprise risk management program that is consistent with the book of business, underwriting appetite, and the reinsurance program of the insurer.  Recognizing that near-term operating results may not have met their expectations, appropriate remediation has been implemented. Having its original formation in 1869, this is a carrier that has been addressing the needs of policyholders, claimants, regulators, reinsurers and producers for 155 years. Few carriers have been able to address the multitude of economic situations that have occurred since 1869. Management seems focused on continuing the longstanding tradition of meeting the needs of all stakeholders.”

“Demotech’s review and affirmed FSR validates our financial strength and future outlook,” said Robert Lyon, President & CEO. “Rockingham Insurance is committed to ensuring long-term stability and financial security for our policyholders and communities. We continuously monitor and adapt our price, product offerings, and agency distribution channels.”
