FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LONDON - NOVEMBER 16, 2020 10:51 AM (EST)
AM Best will host a complimentary webinar on Tuesday, 17 November 2020, at 2 p.m. GMT (9 a.m. EST), to explore key results of the rating agency’s recently conducted survey of insurance companies on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. Among the takeaways from these survey results, included in a new Best’s Special Report, is that significant divergences exist in expectations between regulators and (re)insurance businesses. During the event, senior AM Best analysts also will discuss modifications to Best’s Credit Rating Methodology relating to ESG factors and key implications of ESG adoption for the insurance industry.
