When you purchase protection for the important things in your life, you are buying a promise. A promise that we will be there in times of need and hardship and a promise that you will be able to recover a financial loss should it occur. You count on us to be there in these times and others and we take that obligation very earnestly. For more than eight decades, Williamson Insurance has made it their mission to conduct business in this manner, and the knowledge of our stewardship to others, is what directs us in our decisions.
As an independent insurance agent, we rely on partnering with insurance providers that do business with the same standards and sense of responsibility to their policyholders as we have set for ourselves. Before entering into an agreement to become an agent for a carrier, we take strides towards learning who that company is, their goals and benefits towards their policyholders, and if they are financially sound.
The evidence of our commitment to that way of partnering with an insurance carrier is recognized with the release of the Ward’s Top 50 list for 2020.
Ward’s Top 50
So, what exactly is the Ward’s Top 50? In 1991, Aon plc, a globally recognized company for risk management solutions, developed an analytical, non-biased process for benchmarking key performance areas of an insurance company and to provide the company their performance as compared to fellow insurance providers. Among the metrics used by Aon to develop these ratings are a carrier’s staff levels, business practices, financial stability, and more. This data is then used by an insurance company to identify performance areas in which they are sound and still others where they need to grow and improve. Being named among Ward’s Top 50 demonstrates an insurance company’s commitment to the industry and their policyholders. This analysis is done for nearly 2,900 property and casualty companies and is considered a prominent recognition.
Out of the carriers for whom we are a direct agent, more than half of them have achieved a spot on the Ward’s Top 50 for this year. Those carriers are:
- Auto Owners Insurance
- Grange Insurance
- Ohio Mutual Insurance Group
- Philadelphia Insurance
- Selective Insurance
- Travelers Insurance
We are proud to be an agent for and associated with these top performers. There presence on Ward’s Top 50 displays these company’s same dedication to the customer that we hold so important in our business.
