WEST BEND, WI (July 11, 2022) – West Bend Mutual Insurance Company has placed in the Ward's 50 group of top-performing property and casualty insurers for 2022. The recently released list includes the best industry performers of nearly 3,000 U.S.-domiciled companies. West Bend is recognized for its outstanding financial results in the areas of safety, consistency, and performance over a five-year period (2017-2021). It is the ninth consecutive year the company has been included on this list.
