President's Message - Thank You
It is so hard to believe that it is almost time to look ahead to a new year, and turn the page on 2010. Time has a funny way of flying by right before our eyes, and it is difficult in many cases to reflect on the present moment, and look at everything for what it truly is. It is so easy to get caught up in the many hiccups and headaches that life can throw our way, and if we let it consume us, we can miss out on what is truly important.
That is why we at Paul Hanson Partners are so proud to say that with your help, we have had yet another successful year, and there leaves no doubt that we could not be where we are without you; our loyal customers and brokers. We have not only had the pleasure to work with you on a regular basis throughout the years, but we have had the opportunity to get to know you as individuals, and grow our relationship with you both personally and professionally.
Our mission an as organization is to dedicate ourselves to providing the best insurance product and service in the industry to our customers, brokers, and our carriers. I surely hope that you feel we have provided that for you. From all of us at Paul Hanson Partners, we want to thank you again for your business, loyalty and support for all these years. We simply could not be here without you.
|Zurich's A.M. Best Rating Upgraded to A+|
Paul Hanson Partners is proud to announce that A.M. Best Co. has upgraded Zurich North American Insurance Company's financial strength rating from A (Superior) to A+ (Excellent).
The ratings reflect the improved underwriting and operating performance of Zurich US in recent years,
particularly on an accident year basis, as well as the strong level of risk-adjusted capitalization and enterprise risk management practices that have strengthened the organization as a whole. Additional positive factors include the enhanced profile of the group as one of the top five writers of property/casualty insurance in the United States, giving it market leadership in many of its key product lines and territories.
** Founded in 1899, A.M. Best Company is the world's oldest and most authoritative insurance rating and information source. **
