New York, NY
Ironshore, a New York insurance company, has just received one of the industry’s most prestigious awards for quality.
Ironshore has earned industry publication Insurance Business America’s prestigious 5-Star Carrier rating for its excellence in five categories, including competitive rates, underwriting expertise and range of products.
IBA’s 5-Star Carriers were chosen after an exhaustive survey in which the magazine asked insurance agents to first identify their priorities in choosing a carrier and, second, to rate their carriers based on their top-10 priorities.
“We didn’t award the 5-Star Carrier rating lightly,” said IBA senior journalist Caitlin Bronson. “It was a two-month process in which hundreds of agents nationwide evaluated more than 500 carriers, and believe me—they didn’t hold back.”
IBA rated carriers for their reputation and financial stability, pricing, claims handling product range, quoting turnaround times, underwriting expertise, technology and automation capabilities, marketing support, education and training opportunities, and commitment to the agent distribution channel.
“Ironshore received exceptional ratings across the board, and insurance professionals are tough to impress,” Bronson added. “To be awarded a 5-star rating in even one category is a real honor; to qualify in five is a badge of excellence.”
