A.M. Best Co. has assigned a financial strength rating (FSR) of A- (Excellent) and issuer credit rating (ICR) of “a-” to
State Auto National Insurance Company (State Auto National) (domiciled in Columbus, OH), following its December 31, 2010 acquisition by
Hallmark Insurance Company (Hallmark) from
State Auto Financial Corporation. The outlook assigned to both ratings is stable.
The ratings reflect the benefits State Auto National will receive as being a wholly owned subsidiary of Hallmark, which includes shared services, common board control and an improved geographic footprint. In addition, State Auto National’s name is expected to change in the near term, following regulatory approval, to reflect its new ownership by Hallmark. Furthermore, it is anticipated that State Auto National will be added to
Hallmark Insurance Group’s (Hallmark Group) (headquartered in Fort Worth, TX) inter-company pooling agreement.
