AM Best Places Credit Ratings of Trusted Resource Underwriters Exchange Under Review With Negative Implications

AM Best has placed under review with negative implications the Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of “a-” (Excellent) of Trusted Resource Underwriters Exchange (TRUE) (West Palm Beach, FL).

This follows the Jan. 2, 2024, announcement that American Family Insurance Group and Gallatin Point Capital (Gallatin Point) closed on a transaction under which Gallatin Point will acquire a majority stake in the attorney-in-fact for TRUE. The transaction closed Dec. 31, 2023. Per the announcement, Gallatin Point is investing $1.25 billion of capital into TRUE and plans to expand its footprint nationally.

The under review with negative implications status reflects the significant changes in ownership and overall business strategy and the impact these may have on the Credit Ratings (ratings). At this time, it is also unclear what the impact of the capital commitment and growth will have on TRUE’s balance sheet strength assessment.

The ratings will remain under review in the short term until AM Best obtains additional clarity surrounding TRUE’s business plan.
