Click on that free issue link and it'll take you to the mag. Page 46 has the methodology.

This ranking focuses on independent accountants that audit an insurer’s annual financial statements and actuaries that provide an annual statutory actuarial opinion regarding an insurer’s policy and claim reserves.

AM Best examined the year end 2010 statutory filings of 3945 US & Canadian companies
and Canadian companies to identify the accounting and actuarial firms used by these insurers. The rankings are derived from annual statements that Property/Casualty, life/health or health insurers filed with A.M. Best.
