Examining The Financial Ratings & Investment Risks Of Insurance Carriers

Many producers rely on the Comdex ranking as a measuring stick to compare the financial strength of an insurance company versus its peers. While it’s an admirable goal, it is also an exercise that is flawed, as the Comdex ranking is solely an aggregation of financial ratings a carrier has received from ratings agencies like A.M. Best and S&P.

That’s why we’ve created this eBook, Examining the Financial Ratings and Investment Risks of Insurance Carriers, that compares the Comdex of prominent life insurance companies to a set of different metrics  from ALIRT Insurance Research, a firm that specializes in the financial analysis of insurance companies. We also reveal the underlying investment risks of some of these carriers – some of these findings will surprise you.
