Fire Districts of New York Mutual Insurance Co. Inc. (FDMNY), has maintained its AM Best “A-” rating in the Financial Strength and Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating categories for the third consecutive year. 

“AM Best has assigned a Financial Strength Rating of ‘A-’ (Excellent) and a Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating of ‘A-’ (Excellent) to FDMNY. The outlook assigned to these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable,” reported AM Best. “The ratings reflect FDMNY’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best assesses as strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, limited business profile, and marginal enterprise risk management (ERM).”

AM Best is one of the world’s oldest and authoritative insurance rating organizations. The “A-” ratings indicate that FDMNY is fiscally sound and able to fulfill its financial obligations, and it has a stable outlook for the future.

“Maintaining our AM Best ‘A-’ rating is something we strive to achieve each year, while still prioritizing our purpose to best serve our insureds,” shared FDMNY EVP/COO Roy Denny. “Despite being smaller than other mutual insurance companies, this rating signifies that we are strong and stable, and ready to take on more business.”
