Allied Trust Financial Security

Allied Trust Insurance Company (ATI) has initial capital and surplus five times that the Texas Department requires of Insurance. Being an admitted and domiciled Texas carrier, ATI has $300,000 per risk coverage provided by the North and South Guaranty Associations, with $350,000 covered by the Texas and $500,000 covered by the Louisiana Guaranty Associations. That safety net is not expected to be needed as Allied Trust carries an “A” financial rating by Demotech. We take our financial stability very seriously to ensure that ATI can meet its financial obligations to pay our claims. Reinsurance is a critical component of Allied Trust’s financial stability. Our reinsurance program strategically spreads exposure among approximately fifty highly-rated, highly-capitalized reinsurers around the globe in the Bermuda, London, Europe, Asian and domestic markets that are rated “A-“ or better by A.M. Best. Allied Trust has purchased reinsurance well beyond accepted minimum standards in order to mitigate against both severe and frequent losses to protect ATIC’s capital and surplus. Catastrophe reinsurance safeguards the Company from incurring massive losses sustained from catastrophic events such as hurricanes, tornados, hail and other severe convective storms. ATI carries coverage sufficient to sustain multiple storms of at least 110+ year magnitude. Retention is kept very low so that ATI has low exposure for an individual storm and carries protection for multiple events. Finally, the Company also carries excess of loss coverage to cover any single loss over $400,000. This diversified, conservative approach ensures policyholders are always well protected.
