Fremont Michigan InsuraCorp, Inc. announced today that the rating of its insurance subsidiary, Fremont Insurance Co., has been upgraded by rating agency A.M. Best to “B++” (very good).

The rating is based on a comprehensive evaluation of an insurer’s balance sheet strength, operating performance and business profile, Fremont noted.

Best noted the following items in their rating upgrade of Fremont: well-established presence as a writer of homeowners insurance in Michigan, strong capitalization, improved overall operating results, tightened underwriting guidelines, and expansion into areas of Michigan with less weather-related loss exposure.

“We are very pleased with A.M. Best’s decision to upgrade Fremont Insurance’s rating to B++,” said Richard E. Dunning, president and CEO of Fremont Michigan InsuraCorp, Inc. “The upgrade from A.M. Best sends a strong message of confidence to our policyholders, independent agents and our shareholders.”
