The latest Reinsurance Association of America (RAA) survey reveals that a group of 18 US property-casualty reinsurers wrote $45.5 billion of net premiums during the 9 months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $34.2 billion for the same period in 2017. The combined ratio for the group was 98.2 percent, improving from 111.9 percent for the same period in 2017. The combined ratio is attributable to a 72.5 percent loss ratio versus 88.1 percent for the same period in 2017 and a 25.7 percent expense ratio versus 23.8 percent for the same period in 2017. Policyholders' surplus was $180.2 billion, compared to $170.5 billion at June 30, 2018.
