AM Best has downgraded the Financial Strength Rating to B++ (Good) from A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating to bbb+ from a- of Mennonite Aid Plan of the Pacific Coast (Mennonite) (Reedley, CA). The outlook of these Credit Ratings (ratings) has been revised to stable from negative.

The ratings reflect Mennonites balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorizes as very strong, as well as its marginal operating performance, limited business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management (ERM).

The rating downgrades are due to Mennonites operating performance assessment, which was revised downward to marginal from adequate. This reflects key metrics of total operating return (pre-tax return on revenue, total return on surplus, operating ratio) that lag their respective industry comparison benchmarks on average over the past five years and the longer term.

Mennonites balance sheet strength reflects its strongest level of risk-adjusted capitalization, low underwriting leverage measures and high liquidity. AM Best considers Mennonites business profile limited due to its focused product market and concentration in its geographic region. AM Best acknowledges the companys appropriate ERM practices to mitigate its enterprise risk.
