In a survey of reinsurers' statutory underwriting results conducted by the Reinsurance Association of America (RAA), a group of 18 US property and casualty reinsurers wrote $34.2 billion of net premiums during the 9 months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $32.2 billion for the same period in 2016. The combined ratio for the group was 111.9 percent, deteriorating from the 94.9-percent combined ratio reported for the same period in 2016. The combined ratio is attributable to a 88.1-percent loss ratio and an expense ratio of 23.8 percent. Policyholders' surplus is flat versus the prior quarter.
