Barron’s 400 Selects EMPLOYERS

Employers Holdings, Inc. is excited to announce that the company has once again been selected to the Barron’s 400 Index. This is Employers Holdings Inc. fourth time being selected to the index since Barron’s 400 was created in 1997. With only about 6% of all North American publically-listed companies being selected to the Barron’s 400 Index, this demonstrates the financial strength, stability, and dependability of Employers Holdings, Inc.

Barron’s 400 selects companies based on their fundamental financial soundness and the overall strength of the company’s financial results. They also consider how strong the prospects as an investment are for shareholders.

The Barron’s 400 Index, first introduced on the cover of the September 3, 2007 issue of Barron’s, has outperformed the broader U.S. equity market by more than five percentage points per year in the last decade, a clear measure of the quality of the companies it selects.
