The AM Best Business Trilogy

In 1899, Alfred M. Best started working out of a one-room office in New York City. At the time, he didn’t realize he was not only starting a company but creating the world's first credit rating agency. Since then, AM Best has grown to become the largest credit rating agency in the world specializing in the insurance industry, as well as a news publisher and data analytics provider, and will mark its 125th anniversary on December 14, 2024. We’ve come a long way from the one-room office where the company started in 1899, and we’d like to share the story with you.

The AM Best Business Trilogy tells the story of AM Best, its founder, and the credit rating industry.
