This PowerPoint report, presented by Robert Hartwig, president of the Insurance Information Institute, before the Philadelphia Reinsurance Symposium, provides an overview and outlook of the commercial property/casualty insurance industry for 2014 and beyond. Sections focus on growth, expected to be modest into 2014 both for commercial and personal lines; return on equity growth; economic growth; and large-scale, untapped reservoirs of risk, a section that notes that only 50 to 60 percent of U.S. cat losses are insured. The presentation also looks at the tapering of prior-year reserve releases.
