Amica Mutual and Amica Life both named to the 2011 Ward’s 50 lists


LINCOLN, RI – Both Amica Mutual Insurance Co. and Amica Life Insurance Co. have been named to the 2011 Ward’s 50 top-performing insurance companies based on their financial performance over the past five years.

This is the fifth time Amica Life has made the life-health list (2006, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011) and the second year in a row that Amica Mutual has been named to the property-casualty list.

“'We are honored to earn this designation again this year,” said Robert A. DiMuccio, chairman, president and CEO of Amica Mutual Insurance Co. “Earning a Ward’s 50 designation means that Amica has achieved superior performance in safety, consistency and performance.”

The Ward Group, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, is a leader of benchmarking and best practices for the insurance industry. It analyzes the financial performance of thousands of insurance companies and identifies the top 50 performers in two different categories – life-health and property-casualty. These companies are referred to as the Ward's 50 top performers.

“The property-casualty and life-health industries have demonstrated the ability to manage the business very well during slow economic growth," said Jeff Rieder, president of Ward Group, in a company press release. “In selecting the Ward's 50, we identify companies that pass financial stability requirements and measure their ability to grow while maintaining strong capital positions and underwriting results.”
