NEW YORK, July 24, 2017 – For the 11th consecutive year, Assurant, Inc. (NYSE:AIZ), a global provider of risk management solutions, has been named to the Ward's 50 list of top performing property and casualty companies in recognition of Assurant’s record for financial consistency and performance.

“We are pleased to receive this prestigious recognition and acknowledgement of Assurant’s ongoing financial strength,” said Assurant President and CEO Alan Colberg. “I congratulate and thank our 15,000 employees whose dedicated daily efforts enable this performance and make a difference for our clients and consumers.”

The Ward’s 50 listing is compiled by Ward Group, a part of Aon plc and the leading provider of operational and compensation benchmarking and best practices services for insurance companies. Of the nearly 3,000 property-casualty companies analyzed for consideration, less than 2 percent make the final Ward’s 50 list.

Members of the 2017 Ward’s 50 listing outperformed on such metrics as return on average equity, return on average assets, return on total revenue and revenue growth over a five-year period beginning in 2012.

“In selecting the Ward’s 50, we identified companies that pass financial stability requirements and measure their ability to grow while maintaining strong capital positions and underwriting results,” said Jeff Rieder, partner and head of Ward Group.
