ACE Insurance Review: Auto & Homeowners Complaints, AM Best & JD Power Ratings

ACE Group sells auto, homeowners, and other types of personal property & casualty insurance to meet the needs of high net worth individuals & families. You don’t need to be one of the super rich to consider a company like ACE Group, and anyone with a home worth at least one million dollars, or owns high value cars, boats, vacation homes, or personal property, should contact agents representing companies specializing in properly covering high value property & the insurance needs of their owners, to see if there are expensive gaps in their coverage.

ACE competes with companies like Chubb, AIG, and PURE, offering specialized insurance coverage for the owners of high value property. This ACE review may be of particular importance to auto & home insurance customers of Fireman’s Fund, another insurer of high value homes, because ACE is purchasing the renewal rights of these customers from Fireman’s Fund, as Fireman’s Fund ceases operations, starting in 2015.

Surprisingly, many of the affluent are insured with companies like GEICO, Progressive, Allstate, State Farm, etc. and may be paying too much to be under-insured. A company with competitive rates to insure a $250,000 or $500,000 home may have expensive rates for million dollar homes. If you have a high value home, which company specializing in providing insurance coverage is best for you? How good is ACE auto or homeowners insurance? To help you decide, I’ll review the AM Best financial strength ratings and any JD Power customer satisfaction ratings for the ACE insurance companies, such as Bankers Standard Insurance Company, ACE Insurance Company of the Midwest, and Atlantic Employers Insurance Company, including their auto & home insurance complaint records over the last three years. My review summary will give you my opinion if the ACE Insurance companies are performing better than average, average, or worse than average. You can use the ad below this paragraph (or the ad at the end of this review) to get price quotes from major insurance companies, to see how much the rate varies among insurers to cover your high value property.
