Standard & Poor’s (S&P) has affirmed its AA- rating of OneAmerica and its life insurance companies—American United Life Insurance Company (AUL) and The State Life Insurance Company—and maintained its stable outlook. The AA- rating is the fourth highest of 22 possible ratings.
“Our ratings have been consistently strong and this year is no exception,” said President and CEO Scott Davison. “Standard & Poor’s affirmation confirms that our company is financially sound and built to last. We are well positioned to continue growing, attracting new customers and earning the trust of the people we serve.”
In its report, S&P noted the following, “OneAmerica has a strong competitive position, supported by its leading market position in its niche Care Solutions line, very strong growth in RS (Retirement Services), and high retention rates. OneAmerica’s very strong business risk profile reflects its low product risk levels and strong competitive position.”
The rating agency also cited the following other major factors for the affirmation:
- Very strong business risk profile and extremely strong financial risk profile
- Low product risk profile
- Extremely strong capital, demonstrated by ‘AAA’ redundancy
- Management continues to focus on its mutual status and keeps balance sheet and policyholder protection as its primary objectives, followed by profitable growth
S&P also maintained the OneAmerica enterprise risk management score as 'strong'. The organization remains one of only 12 companies in the life insurance industry to receive a score of 'strong' or better.
