Starmount Life Earns a Spot to the Prestigious Ward’s 50 Top Performers List
Starmount makes the Ward’s 50 Top Performers List
The 2016 Ward’s 50 list names Starmount Life Insurance Company, sister company to AlwaysCare Benefits, Inc., as one of the life and health insurance industry’s 50 top performers.
Each year the Ward Group, an AON Hewitt research company, analyzes the financial and operational performance of more than 700 life and health insurers domiciled in the United States. The detailed evaluation process applies a series of safety and consistency tests, and identifies the top 50 companies that outperform the industry within a five-year period.
“In selecting the Ward’s 50, we identified companies that pass financial stability requirements and measure their ability to grow while maintaining strong capital positions and underwriting results,” says Jeff Rieder, partner and head of the Ward Group.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the top performing life and health insurance companies, and a credit to our entire team of professionals across the country,” Starmount CEO Erich Sternberg said.
”Our company’s success reflects our commitment to providing customers with valuable coverage and exceptional service,” said Starmount President Deborah Sternberg. “The Ward’s 50 is a great tribute to that customer-first approach.”
Inclusion in the 2016 Ward’s 50 is the most recent of several accomplishments for Starmount Life and AlwaysCare Benefits. Others include:
- Named as one of the 2016 top 100 private companies in the greater Baton Rouge area.
- Listed as one the fastest-growing companies on Inc. 5000 for the sixth time in August, 2015.
- Released an updated mobile app based upon customer feedback.
