BUCYRUS, OH – Ohio Mutual Insurance Group achieved a milestone this week, marking 30 consecutive years of earning an “A” (Excellent) financial strength rating from insurance rating organization A.M. Best, which also reaffirmed its issuer credit rating of “a+” for the regional insurance carrier.

The ratings include the three companies that represent Ohio Mutual’s intercompany pool: Ohio-domiciled Ohio Mutual Insurance Company, its wholly owned subsidiary United Ohio Insurance Company, and Maine-domiciled Casco Indemnity Company – all entities of holding company Ohio Mutual Insurance Group, Inc.

“Earning three decades of ‘straight A’s’ is certainly an achievement of which we are very proud,” said Ohio Mutual President & CEO Mark C. Russell. “These years have been marked with constant growth, new products, expansion from one state to seven, a corporate restructuring, several major recessions, and a worldwide pandemic. To obtain this high level of recognition year after year is a testament to decades of strong teamwork of our quality independent agents and associates – all for the ultimate benefit of our loyal members.”

In its rating rationale, A.M. Best offered positive analysis of Ohio Mutual’s strong balance sheet, favorable operating performance, long-lasting relationships, and stable outlook.
Founded in 1899, A.M. Best Company is the world’s oldest and most authoritative insurance rating and information source. More information is available at
