TT Club Outlook Improved

Wednesday, April 20, 2005
TT Club’s improving financial position has been acknowledged by industry ratings agency AM Best, which has revised its outlook on the mutual insurer’s rating from ‘stable’ to ‘positive’. This latest recognition marks further progress toward the goal of regaining an ‘A-’ rating. In its press release AM Best affirmed a rating of ‘B++ (Very Good)’ and indicated that the change of outlook reflects an expectation that the current ratings could be reassessed once TT Club has demonstrated a consistent track record of strong earnings. TT Club’s 2004 record performance saw gross earned premiums rise by over 20% and the total surplus and reserves increase by 58%. AM Best also noted that as a leading insurer and risk manager for the international transport and logistics industry, TT Club has a strong business position in its niche market. Paul Neagle, TT Club Chief Executive, welcomed the fact that the AM Best assessment had confirmed the increasing financial strength of the Club. “The improvement in outlook means the Club has ascended a further rung on the ratings ladder,” he stated, “and I am confident that TT is well placed to deliver consistently strong earnings in 2005 and beyond.”
