Its robust growth in IT systems' advancement and the steps it took for ceasing of more than 90% of the total SB 1899 Northridge earthquake claims as well as its striving growth policies, all in all helped 21st Century to improve its financial state. Its sound financial results influenced S & P to promote its outlook towards 21st Century from “negative” to “stable”.

According to Bruce Marlow; President and CEO of 21st Century, the company established a strong growth in its overall financial situation, especially on S & P's operating topics. The group enhanced its invested assents from $856 million to $1.4 billion and loss reserves from $349 million to $486 million; in between the period of end of 2001 to third quarter of 2004.

As of 2003, its S & P capital adequacy ratio was 243% while by the end of Q3 2004, its premium to surplus ratio was 2.2: 1. The aforementioned financial status let the merchant retain the financial growth intake, particularly in California and other states like Illinois, Indiana, Texas and Ohio. Its online cutting-edge computer systems and low cost call centre also helped it to do well onwards by cutting the operating costs.

Although, robust underwriting, investment and cash flow performance demonstrated its economical improvement, but S & P's upgraded view over the company affirmed the fact, as reported by Lawrence Bascom; Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of 21st Century Insurance.
