American Pet Insurance Company (APIC) is touted as the only national company marketing and underwriting pet health insurance in the United States. A New York domiciled property and casualty insurance company owned by Vetinsiurance International, APIC provides pet health insurance to clients in the United States and Canada.
Since 1989, FSRs of A or better have been accepted by the major participants in the secondary mortgage marketplace. The rating process provides an objective baseline and insight into the future solvency of a company. Demotech predicts financial stability in the insurance industry and attempts to level the playing field by offering FSRs to insurers of all sizes.
In April of 2007, Vetinsurance International raised $22 million dollars in order to purchase APIC. The co-founder of Maverin, Dan Levitan, lead the round of financing. Maveron has funded Starbucks, eBay, The Motley Fool, Cranium, Drugstore.com, and many other public companies.
