OneBeacon is a specialty property/casualty insurance group targeting specialized insurance products, industries, classes of business and risk characteristics. OBIA was formed to expand OneBeacon’s existing platform for writing workers’ compensation coverage.
While OBIA’s ratings are stable, future positive rating actions may result if the group’s underwriting and operating results outperform its peers for an extended period of time. Negative rating actions may result if the group’s underwriting and operating performance falls markedly short of A.M. Best’s expectation or if there is a material weakening of risk-adjusted capitalization.
