According to Joseph L. Petrelli, ACAS, MAAA (MBA), President and co-founder, Demotech, Inc.:  "We have been briefed by Anchor personnel regarding the revisions to its business model.  Although our review and analysis process was designed to evaluate carriers executing a business model that is forward focused, Anchor's commitment to a 'soft landing' for existing policyholders and claimants convinced us to continue to review, analyze, and comment on its balance sheet integrity and operating results during its anticipated voluntary runoff."
