BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Chubb estimates fourth-quarter cat losses of $320 million

Chubb estimates fourth-quarter cat losses of $320 million

Chubb Ltd. expects to report $320 million in pretax catastrophe losses for the fourth quarter, the insurer announced late Wednesday.

Most of the losses stems from wildfires in California, which Chubb estimates will result in $280 million in pretax losses, a Chubb statement said.

The estimates are net of reinsurance and include losses from its commercial insurance, personal lines and reinsurance operations.

The fourth-quarter catastrophe losses cap a year of significant losses for Chubb and most other commercial property insurers operating in the United States. In the third-quarter, which included losses from devastating hurricanes in the United States and Caribbean, Chubb reported pretax catastrophe losses of $1.89 billion and an overall net loss of $70 million for the quarter.
