AM Best rated insurers can showcase their Best’s Credit Rating by displaying their BestMark, a well-known icon customized with their assigned level of financial strength, in marketing collateral.
A BestMark communicates AM Best's informed, objective opinion of a rated insurer's financial strength. It demonstrates to agents, brokers, customers, prospects and the financial services industry that the company has undergone AM Best's rigorous rating process.
A BestMark can be featured in marketing materials such as websites, print ads, brochures, web ads, social media, email signatures, business cards, and conference and events materials. It’s available in black, blue and gold to complement the style of your marketing materials, with a white BestMark available for use on dark backgrounds.
Rated insurers have the option to embed a link in their digital BestMark icon that opens their company’s profile page on the AM Best website.
First, find your company’s profile page by using the Search for a Best’s Credit Rating box. Then, contact us for instructions on how to link your BestMark icon to your company page.
Learn about the History of BestMark.
BestMark guidelines are explained on page nine of the “Guide to Proper Use of Best’s Ratings & Assessments.”
Insurers can grant permission to its agents and/or brokers to use their BestMark once the rated company has provided approval to AM Best via firstname.lastname@example.org.
