MADISON, Wisc. (May 15, 2017) — AAA Insurance has earned “Brand of the Year” status in the property and casualty category, according to the prestigious 2017 Harris Poll EquiTrend® study.

It’s a great honor to be recognized as the top property and casualty insurance brand for the second year in a row.”

AAA Auto & Home Insurance received the highest numerical Equity Score among Property & Casualty insurance brands included in the 2017 Harris Poll EquiTrend® Study, which is based on opinions of 102,617 U.S. consumers ages 15 and over surveyed online between December 30, 2016 and February 21, 2017.  Individual opinions may differ.  “Highest Ranked” was determined by a pure ranking of a sample of property and casualty insurance brands.
