Best Co. has affirmed the financial strength rating (FSR) of A- (Excellent) and issuer credit rating (ICR) of “a-â€? of AmerInst Insurance Group, Ltd. (AmerInst) (Bermuda). The outlook for both ratings is stable.

These ratings reflect AmerInst’s conservative reserve position, its niche expertise as a reinsurer of professional liability policies and adequate capitalization. AmerInst has a history of reserve adequacy and has grown its premium volume over a five-year period, while maintaining conservative underwriting leverage.

Partially offsetting these positive rating factors are the company’s narrow spread of underwriting risk and high investment leverage. Nonetheless, AmerInst’s common stock portfolio was the source of significant realized gains since 2004.
