Motor Insurance Company Limited (MICL), operating under the trading style of Car Care Plan Insurance, has been confirmed as having an excellent financial strength rating by AM Best – the world’s first credit rating agency and the largest specialising in the insurance industry.

The warranty and add-on insurance provider was awarded an “A-” (Excellent) financial strength rating reflecting a “very strong” balance sheet and “strong” operating performance.

Automotive manufacturers and retailers partnering with the Car Care Plan Group can be confident the end-to-end warranty and add-on products offered to their customers are backed by a stable, robust and dependable business.

Car Care Plan and MICL CEO, Ben Russell, commented: “This confirms our commitment to providing high quality protection to our partners and customers.  MICL is a UK domestic firm, authorised by the PRA and regulated by the FCA and PRA in the UK. 

"Over recent years, UK customers have suffered from delays and issues in claim payments caused by the insolvency of a small number of overseas insurers, who were able to sell policies in the UK, as part of the EU.  Overseas insurers will be able to continue to do this until 2023 under the transitional rules and so we are keen to demonstrate how MICL’s security and commitment to UK customers is different to other insurers currently offering the same products.”

AM Best was founded in 1899 and now assesses and reports on over 16,000 insurance companies worldwide.

This helps provide peace-of-mind for consumers and businesses by ensuring they can make informed choices about who they purchase financial products from.

When assessing Car Care Plan Insurance, AM Best concluded: “the balance sheet strength is underpinned by its risk-adjusted capitalisation at the strongest level, as measured by Best’s Capital Adequacy Ratio (BCAR), prudent reserving practices, demonstrated by a track record of favourable reserve development, and a high-quality investment portfolio”.

When publishing the rating, AM Best also noted Car Care Plan Insurance’s “track record of strong operating performance”, “stable underwriting performance”, and “a well-established competitive position in the motor warranty market in the UK”.
