Comdex Ranking

The Comdex ranking is not a rating. It is a composite index which is created by combining the ratings of multiple insurance rating agencies into a single number from 1 (lowest) to 100 (highest). The number is a percentile showing where a company stands in comparison to other ranked companies based on the ratings it has received from rating agencies. A company needs to be rated by at least two rating agencies to receive a Comdex rank but may be rated by more than two rating agencies. For more information about Comdex rankings you may visit their web site at www.ebixlife.com.
