Demotech, Inc. Announces the 2017 Stakeholder Team Accomplishment Recognition (STAR) Award Winners


Since 2013, Demotech has conferred the Stakeholder Team Accomplishment RecognitionTM (STAR) Award to honor Property & Casualty companies that were able to satisfy all stakeholders by meeting or exceeding our objective criteria for each stakeholder category.

Based on statutory financial statements submitted to the NAIC and obtained through our data vendor, SP Global (formerly SNL Financial), an elite group of twenty-two companies qualified for a 2017 STAR Award.  Twenty-two insurers, comprising less than 1% of the 2,628 eligible Property & Casualty carriers, earned our STAR Award by addressing the needs of the entire spectrum of stakeholders: regulators, consumers, producers, corporate employees, reinsurers, claimants, and owners.  Demotech believes that carriers that earn a profit while simultaneously addressing the needs of their constituents deserve recognition for satisfying all stakeholders.
