2014 annual review

Annual Review In 2014, nearly 95 percent of policyholders renewed with SFM, many of them reaping the benefits of lower experience ratings as a consequence of our collaborative efforts. Our top-line premium grew 6 percent in 2014 to $155 million, primarily as a result of burgeoning payrolls in the strong economies of the Upper Midwest. We achieved a favorable return on policyholder surplus (9%) and a combined ratio under 100 for the third successive year. We also expanded our fee income business by adding self-insured clients and increasing the percentage of the Minnesota Assigned Risk Plan serviced by SFM Risk Solutions. We understand better than anyone that to remain successful during the next insurance cycle we'll need to perform better than the competition on the loss/claims side of the insurance equation.
