SAN FRANCISCO — 19 April 2023 — At-Bay, the insurance provider for the digital age, announced today that AM Best has assigned At-Bay Specialty Insurance Company a Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent), with a ”stable” outlook.

“At-Bay is on a mission to accelerate the growth and innovation needed to build the next generation of insurance for the digital age,” said Rotem Iram, CEO and co-founder of At-Bay, and Chairman of the board for At-Bay Specialty Insurance Company. “The A- rating from AM Best is the latest milestone on our journey toward making that goal a reality,” he added.
As an E&S carrier, At-Bay aims to better serve its policyholders and valued brokers by expanding into additional specialty lines and offering innovative solutions to address new and emerging risks among today’s small-to-mid-sized businesses. The company expects to start writing policies on its own paper later this year.
