Explorer’s Parent Company, ICW Group, Named 2012 Super Regional Property / Casualty Insurer™

San Diego, CA – May 24, 2012 – ICW Group has again been named a Super Regional™ carrier by Demotech, Inc., the official research partner for leading industry publication – Insurance Journal magazine. Since 1985, Demotech has been providing independent financial stability ratings of property / casualty insurers. The criteria for Super Regional P/C Insurers™ was established by Demotech, Inc. in 2007.

Quantitative analysis of year-end 2011 data, as well as a refined classification system, led Demotech to narrow the identified companies to only 155 as Super Regional out of nearly 3,000 companies considered.

Ranked 56th, ICW Group moved up 11 positions over last year. The company was selected as a Super Regional™ based on multiple performance metrics, including broad geographic coverage, multi-line capabilities and strong financial performance.

The full report appeared as the cover story in the May 7th issue of Insurance Journal magazine. In the report Joseph Petrelli, president of Demotech, stated:

“Super Regional insurers are critically important to the insurance industry and to their agents, producers and insureds. These companies are strong, stable markets that work hard for their agents, insureds as well as their reinsurers.”
