FM Global Jumps 15 Spots to No. 561 on Fortune Magazine’s List of America’s Largest Companies

LONDON, UK —FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers, has jumped to No. 561 on Fortune magazine’s 2016 list of America’s 1,000 largest companies.

The ranking is based on FM Global’s fiscal year 2015 financial performance and represents a rise of 15 spots from its prior year’s ranking of No. 576.

In 2015, the mutual insurance company’s combined ratio was 85.3 percent, and the combination of strong underwriting performance and investment results increased FM Global’s surplus by 3.8 percent to US$11 billion. This strong financial performance led the company to recently announce it would provide an estimated US$465 million membership credit in 2016/2017 to eligible clients.

Founded in 1835, FM Global remains one of the longest-standing companies among the Fortune 1000.
