GuideOne Insurance today released its 2023 Annual Report, highlighting the mutual insurance company's activities, strategic initiatives and accomplishments for the past year.

"It was definitely a year in which we took care of the business," GuideOne President & CEO Ken Cadematori said. "From our Simplification efforts that resulted in streamlined processes, reduced expenses and improved efficiencies to the capital augmentation and agreement with Bain Insurance Services that positioned us for financial stability and growth, we took significant steps forward and are now focusing on the needs of our policyholders and the growth of the business."

As noted in the report, GuideOne's financial performance highlights for the year ended Dec. 31, 2023, include:

  • Surplus grew by $143 million
  • Direct written premium from ongoing operations increased by 18.4% to $842 million
  • Combined ratio of the ongoing business improved from 103.9% to 99.5%

“Our excellent performance this past year reflects the soundness of our strategy, the dedication of our talented employees and our long-term approach as a mutual company, which places our policyholders at the center of everything we do," added Cadematori. “In 2024, we look forward to continuing the hard work that produced these outcomes and will carry us forward."
