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.
