Oklahoma Farm Bureau Insurance Receives Improved Credit Rating

Company improves Financial Strength Rating for four years

OKLAHOMA – Oklahoma Farm Bureau Insurance’s Financial Strength Rating was recently upgraded from a B+ to a B++ by A.M. Best Rating Services, Inc.*, a national credit rating service that specializes in insurance. According to the report by AM Best, the rating reflects the company’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorizes as strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, limited business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

The Oklahoma-based insurance company has enhanced its credit rating status three times in the last four years. According to the credit report, the ratings also reflect the sustained improvement in the group’s operating performance, evidenced by its five-year average combined ratio, operating ratio and total return on equity.

“I am extremely proud of our company and the progress we have made in the past four years,” said Gary Bucker, executive vice president and general manager of Oklahoma Farm Bureau Insurance. “As the largest domestic insurance company in Oklahoma, our employees and leadership team are proud to provide insurance products and services that protect our friends and neighbors across the state, and this improved rating only underscores that fact.”

The credit report also cites that OKFB Insurance management’s aggressive actions in overall risk management and exposure have resulted in consistent and stable operating results, which is the main drive to the rating upgrades.
