So reports The Ward Group, a unit of Aon Hewitt, in its 2016 annual report on life insurers. The benchmarking firm analyzed the financial performance of nearly 3,000 property-casualty insurance companies and nearly 700 life-health insurance companies domiciled in the U.S. to identify the top performers in each segment. The financial analysis is based on publicly available data, and was conducted independently of the Ward Group’s annual benchmarking programs.

Each of Ward’s top 50 companies passed all safety and consistency screens and achieved superior performance over the five years analyzed.
