ProAssurance's Chief Executive Officer, W. Stancil Starnes, said, "Earning recognition as a Ward's 50 company each year for more than a decade is testament to the successful execution of our long-term strategy and a tribute to the employees who implement it. We have achieved the high level of financial performance required for inclusion in the Ward's 50 list, and continue to create meaningful value for our investors, despite operating in some of the most challenging lines of insurance in America. As we continue to deliver on the promise of 'Treated Fairly,' we reaffirm our dedication to providing unquestioned security, superior service, and creative, effective insurance solutions to our insureds and the distribution partners who help us serve a complex, evolving market."

The Ward Group screened nearly 2,900 insurers for financial stability, asset quality and capital position, revenue growth, underwriting results, financial returns, and operational excellence. Only companies that survive the rigorous evaluation process are recognized by their inclusion in the Ward's 50.

Jeffrey J. Rieder, partner and head of the Ward Group underscored the challenging market conditions that this year's Ward's 50 companies successfully addressed. He said, "Low investment returns, rising loss costs, and competitive market conditions continue to impact financial returns for the industry. In selecting the Ward's 50, we identified companies that pass financial stability requirements and measure their ability to grow while maintaining strong capital positions and underwriting results."
