DES MOINES, IOWA — Ward Group, a leading provider of benchmarking and best practices studies for insurance companies, has included Homesteaders Life Company in its 2014 list of 50 top performing life and health insurers in the United States. This recognition marks the sixth consecutive year that Homesteaders has been included in this list.
Ward Group conducts an annual analysis of nearly 800 life-health companies and identifies the top performers in each segment. Homesteaders was included in the group of top performing companies for achieving outstanding financial results in the areas of safety, consistency and performance.
“Homesteaders’ conservative financial philosophy is rooted in ensuring we are able to keep our promises to our customers and policy owners long into the future,” said Homesteaders’ president and CEO Steve Lang. “Our recognition as one of Ward’s 50 top performers is an important affirmation of our success in providing the safe, secure insurance funding our stakeholders demand and deserve.” Each company named to the Ward’s 50 top performer list has passed all safety and consistency screens and achieved superior performance over the five years analyzed (2009-2013).
