Demotech, Inc. Revises Financial Stability Rating® For Universal Insurance Company Of North America To An FSR Of A, Exceptional

COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Demotech, the financial analysis company whose Financial Stability Ratings ® FSRs have coalesced Florida's property insurance marketplace since 1996, has completed its review of the year-end 2012 financial and qualitative information of Universal Insurance Company of North America.  Based on this review, Demotech has revised the FSR for Universal Insurance Company of North America to A, Exceptional.

According to Joseph L. Petrelli, President and Co-founder, "Demotech is familiar with the numerous legislative, regulatory and marketplace changes that have taken place in Florida over the past several years. The fifty Florida domiciled carriers that we review and rate comprise nearly 75% of the Homeowners insurance market not written by Citizens Property Insurance Corporation or State Farms' Florida affiliate.  As such, when we say that we believe that Universal Insurance Company of North America has been and will continue to be a key carrier in the resurgence of the private sector in Florida, we have the breadth and depth of experience to opine.  Universal Insurance Company of North America remains well positioned to serve its insureds, agents, reinsurers and other stakeholders."
