This National American auto insurance review discusses Chandler, Oklahoma-based National American Insurance Company (NAICO).

The insurance company serves the needs of local Oklahoma and Texas industries, including oil & gas, trucking, transportation, construction, and retail.

School board liability policies have become another area of specialty for NAICO.

NAICO works with a regional network of approximately 200 independent insurance brokers and agents. The company does not maintain a proprietary team of sales brokers and agents.

National American Insurance Financial Information

NAICO was downgraded from an “A-” to a “B++” rating by A.M. Best Company. The reason for the downgrade was a previous working relationship with the now-defunct Reliance Insurance Company which is now in liquidation.

They have recently been able to have an updated rating of an “A-.”

NAICO realized that Reliance was unable to meet its financial obligations for reinsurance of commercial insurance issued several years ago. To that end, NAICO turned to other reinsurers for assistance.

In that way, the company’s clients were protected from potential financial harm from Reliance’s problems.

The company’s liquidity, leverage, and profitability remain sound, according to statements made by the company on the website and the AM best rating.

The company also suffered construction losses in the South Texas marketplace. In the last decade, the construction business grew rapidly in that market.

Unfortunately, the global and national economic downturn affected construction. South Texas was more deeply affected than other regional construction markets.

NAICO maintains commercial relationships with the following companies:

  • Chesapeake Energy
  • Exxon Mobile
  • Koch Industries
  • Tyson
  • Devon Energy
  • Love’s Country Stores

As a privately-owned company, NAICO welcomes the opportunity to open its balance sheet for review upon request.
