Demotech has affirmed the Financial Stability Ratings (FSR) of A (Exceptional) for FedNat Insurance Company, Maison Insurance Company, and Monarch National Insurance Company.

Demotech founder and President, Joe Petrelli, noted that additional information was considered to supplement the Q2 2021 financial statements and operating results.

“We obtained information through conversations and meetings with executive management that was not available at the time of the most recent statutory financial statements,” he said.

“Given our current understanding of the revisions in corporate business model, in anticipation of the favourable impact of the efforts on the company’s operating plan, the availability of capital, and future operating results, in conjunction with the company’s immediate access to sufficient capital to honour or defend meritorious claims as they come due.

“Including the recent catastrophe losses and loss adjustment expenses, we issue this affirmation of the FSR based upon the totality of our review of the June 30, 2021 operating results and actions of management. Any future affirmations will require demonstrable evidence of the impact of the revisions on the company’s financial stability.”

According to Mike Braun, Chief Executive Officer, FedNat Holding Company, President, FedNat Insurance Company: “The Company has experienced an unprecedented amount of weather related events over the past eighteen months, more than has been experienced in its nearly thirty years of business.

“FedNat, along with the support of its reinsurance partners, continues to provide quality and timely service to all of our policyholders that have been impacted by this weather.

“We very much value Demotech’s leading financial stability rating expertise that recognises the challenging environment in which we operate as well as our initiatives to improve future financial results.”

Petrelli added: “The rigorous, albeit expensive, horizontal reinsurance program purchased by the companies protected stakeholders, particularly claimants.

“The policyholders of these insurers have been well-served by the catastrophe reinsurance requirements associated with the assignment of an FSR from Demotech.”
