This PowerPoint report, presented by Robert Hartwig, president of the Insurance Information Institute, at the 2010 AEGIS European Energy Conference in Prague, focuses on the global economics of the property/casualty (P/C) insurance industry, with an emphasis on trends and challenges in energy markets. The presentation looks at insurance industry exposure and energy concerns in the context of Europe’s weak economic recovery. It discusses post-crisis trends in energy consumption and the generation of carbon emissions as well as changes in global and regional demand for energy and insurance. Slides provide information on the impact of the global financial crisis on the energy business and on insurer financial strength and ratings. A section deals with the resilience of the insurance and reinsurance sectors. Other sections focus on P/C insurance industry financial performance; the energy insurance market; capacity, rating, exposure, profitability, reinsurance, and ART; catastrophe losses and losses in the energy sector; post-crisis changes to the insurance regulatory environment and systemic risk regulation.
