RAA Reports Dramatic Deterioration in US Reinsurers' Operating Results

November 30, 2017

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.

According to the RAA website, the RAA Reinsurance Underwriting Report presents the cumulative quarterly underwriting and operating results of major US property casualty reinsurers and includes premiums, losses, underwriting and expense ratios, and other financial results, including the following interactive report sections.
