AM Best considers Delta’s corporate governance and internal controls to be excellent. Delta has implemented a sophisticated capacity provider selection framework that enhances the products and coverage it can offer its policyholders. The ability to deliver these products is complemented by Delta’s extensive use of internal audits, policies, procedures, quality reviews and monitoring.

AM Best considers Delta’s financial position to be strong. Since inception, Delta has had a record of profitable businesses with stable revenue streams and consistently positive net worth. Profits are generally allocated to reinvestment in operations. The results indicate reproducibility in times of rising premiums, policyholder numbers or geographic expansion.
