Get a Best’s Performance Assessment for Delegated Underwriting Authority Enterprises

Best’s Performance Assessment for DUAEs* (PA for DUAEs) is a powerful tool for DUAEs to promote their capabilities and expertise to other parties – investors, venture capitalists, regulators, and insurers. It provides a forward-looking, independent and objective, non-credit opinion of a DUAE’s ability to perform services on behalf of its insurance partners. 

Best’s PA for DUAEs’ comprehensive analysis consists of a quantitative and qualitative assessment of Underwriting Capabilities, Governance and Internal Controls, Financial Condition, Organizational Talent, and Depth and Breadth of Relationships, giving DUAEs of all sizes and in all segments the opportunity to differentiate themselves in the marketplace, and establish a global benchmark of their ability to service their business partners.

The AM Best assessment process involves ongoing interaction with AM Best analysts and the assessed DUAE through Assessment Meetings, which include discussions about the quantitative and qualitative information and data required for the assessment process.
