JOHNSTON, R.I., USA—When America’s corporate insurance buyers look to purchase commercial property insurance, business interruption or terrorism coverage, a newsurvey by the Flaspöhler Research Group finds the “business favorite” is FM Global, one of the world’s largest business property insurers. This is the second year in a row that Flaspöhler’s annual survey ranked FM Global tops for commercial property and business interruption insurance, two of the company’s prime areas of business.
The 2011 “Risk Manager Choice” survey of 364 U.S. corporate insurance buyers, conducted in partnership with National Underwriter magazine, also finds FM Global is thetop-rated insurer for underwriting capabilities, financial value, financial security, client orientation, expertise and market knowledge, timely service and claims handling.
The findings come on the heels of related research by Greenwich Associates earlier this month of nearly 700 U.S. corporate risk managers. The study found FM Global to be the best commercial insurer at claims processing, customer service and underwriting expertise.
FM Global’s clients include nearly one of every three FORTUNE 1000 companies and similar-sized organizations.
