How did Demotech become the first to accomplish this?  Anita L. Champ, retired, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae, who coordinated Fannie Mae’s due diligences on Demotech, recollects that despite being asked multiple times to develop a process for reviewing these carriers, A. M. Best declined to do so.  In response to one of her requests, representatives of A. M. Best advised her that it was «impossible» to develop such a review and analysis process.  Ms. Champ’s recollection is on page 22 of the May 2019 issue. The online version of TDD is here:

In addition to a celebration in print, Demotech appeared on Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®.  The segment aired as sponsored content on Bloomberg and Fox Business Network.  It is available at  Or, you can search YouTube using «Kathy Ireland Demotech.»

Kathy Ireland summarized Demotech’s role accurately when she stated that Demotech «identifies hundreds of financially stable insurance company options that might have otherwise been overlooked.»
