Insurance Industry 2020 - Commentary on first half financial results

The property/casualty (P/C) insurance industry turned in a profitable overall performance in the first half of 2020. Policyholders’ surplus reached a near-record high, and  premium growth is now experiencing its longest sustained period of gains in a decade. Fundamentally, the P/C insurance industry remains quite strong financially, with capital adequacy ratios remaining high, relative to long-term historical averages.


I.I.I. Glossary

CREDIT SCORE- The number produced by an analysis of an individual’s credit history. The use of credit information affects all consumers in many ways, including getting a job, finding a place to live, securing a loan, getting telephone service and buying insurance. Credit history is routinely reviewed by insurers before issuing a commercial policy because businesses in poor financial condition tend to cut back on safety, which can lead to more accidents and more claims. Auto and home insurers may use information in a credit history to produce an insurance score. Insurance scores may be used in underwriting and rating insurance policies. (See Insurance score )

NO-FAULT MEDICAL- A type of accident coverage in homeowners policies.
