Indianapolis, IN, USA – WEBWIRE

Indiana Farmers Insurance was recognized today as a member of Ward’s 50 Companies for the second year in a row. Ward’s 50 is a group of property-casualty companies recognized by Ward Benchmarking for superior performance across a number of key safety and consistency measurements and performance tests for the previous five years.

“We are proud to be selected once again to the prestigious Ward’s 50. The award criteria reflect the work of all our associates and underscores our financial preparedness to serve our policyholders,” said Kim Smith, Indiana Farmers Insurance CEO and president.

“Our five-year combined ratio of just under 95% reflects our strong underwriting discipline. In addition, direct written premiums increased 6.6 percent from 2017 to 2018. Since 2014, our policyholder surplus increased 9.6 percent on a compound annual growth rate basis,” said Jennifer Pressley, CFO and senior vice president. “We are honored the Ward Group recognized our outstanding performance.” 

Each year, Ward analyzes the financial performance of nearly 3,000 property-casualty insurance companies domiciled in the U.S. to identify the Ward’s 50. In selecting the Ward’s 50, the Ward Group identifies companies that pass financial stability requirements and demonstrate potential to grow while maintaining strong capital positions and underwriting results.
