S&P Global projects 2022 P&C loss ratios to be over 100 with combined ratios to be near 110.
Extrapolating the average, this means some carriers could lose as much as 30 cents on every premium dollar which could result in:
– Brokers and MGAs will not be getting their bonuses.
– 2023 could be an austere year for carriers
– Reinsurers will be bumping premiums (we have heard 40%+ in LatAm)
How can you combat the macro trend for your business?
The biggest challenge for our industry is to get the entire value chain to work as one cohesive unit. That means commercial accounts bringing process reengineering from reinsurer best practices through carrier loss control to policyholders, delivered by brokers (outside or renewal time). It also means brokers and carriers must educate consumers about the risks of construction that marginally meets code, especially in cat exposed areas.
InsurTech NY is here to make collaboration across the value chain easy. We are hosting a two day conference to discuss this topic between reinsurers, carriers, brokers, and InsurTechs.

It might not feel like it, but Ian is projected to be in the top 10 most damaging storms in U.S. history. It is part of a string of storms in the past three years that have made landfall at 150 MPH or more – Ian (2022), Ida (2021), and Laura (2020).
However, in all the devastation, there was a glimmer of hope in Babcock Ranch, FL., America’s first solar powered town. The town essentially survived unscathed through hurricane-force winds.
Insurers must face the reality that risk transfer is not enough in an environment of a changing climate. Insurers must work with their policyholders to harden property and process claims faster to expedite the repair process.
We have decided to discuss the topic of resilience in another Cat exposed state, California. Join us in Palo Alto on Dec 8th to discuss Resilience and Claims.
