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”.

Reinsurer net premiums up 8.6% in 2022


U.S. property/casualty reinsurers wrote $81.0 billion of net premiums in 2022, up 8.6% from $74.6 billion in 2021, according to year-end data released Friday by the Reinsurance Association of America.

The association’s group of 17 U. S. property/casualty reinsurers posted a combined ratio of 99.8% for 2022, unchanged from 2021.

The group’s combined ratio stems from a 76.5% loss ratio for 2022 against 75.3% for 2021, and a 2022 expense ratio of 23.3% compared with 24.5% in 2021.

The policyholders’ surplus was $254.4 billion as of Dec. 31, 2022, up 6.4% compared with $239.0 billion in the prior quarter.
