Peer Reports require no additional research and are formatted with relevant charts and graphs (available only to subscribers of both Best's Insurance Reports and Best's Statement File products).
  • Perform trend analysis, financial planning and review, and competitive benchmarking with Best's Quantitative Analysis Reports (QAR). These reports, developed and used by A.M. Best rating analysts during the rating process, include five years of profitability, liquidity and leverage data.
