A-rated cover from ICW

When searching for building warranty cover, you will see many companies refer to the rating of the insurer. Building warranty (or latent defect insurance) companies receive ratings from independent agencies based on their assessments of the insurer’s financial strength and claims-paying ability.

The rating of an insurer is a vital consideration when purchasing insurance. The higher the rating of the insurer, the higher the rating agency’s assessment that the insurer will be able to honour the terms of insurance policies.

A.M. Best is a global rating agency that reports on the financial strength of insurance companies. It is one of the most widely recognised providers of ratings, financial data and insurance industry news.

ICW signed a long-term deal with insurance partner Accelerant, who hold an AM Best A- (Excellent) rating.
