Adirondack Insurance Exchange will be owned by its policyholders and managed by Adirondack AIF, LLC, an attorney-in-fact, AAIF. AAIF is a wholly owned subsidiary of OneBeacon, LLC.

The Financial Stability Rating® of A (Exceptional) was based, in large part, upon the company’s well-presented business plan, which was to be executed by an experienced management team.

Financial Stability Ratings® are based upon statutory insurance accounting principles prescribed or permitted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). For more than a decade, Financial Stability Ratings® of A or better have been accepted by the major participants in the secondary mortgage marketplace, including the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and HUD.

As part of our continuous evaluation of companies, subscribers to Financial Stability Ratings® submit both annual and quarterly financial reports. Financial Stability Ratings® are reviewed and, when appropriate, revised quarterly.
