CEO Neill A. Currie commented: “Our insured catastrophe losses were relatively modest during the third quarter in a season that experienced a relatively large number of tropical storm formations. On the other hand, there was notable volatility in the capital markets which adversely impacted our investment results. We reported $49.3 million of net income, $32.7 million of operating income and a 1.0 percent increase in book value per share in the quarter.”

“We have been pleased to be there for our clients and brokers during this active year, paying valid claims with industry leading speed. During 2012, we will work closely with our clients to help them understand the effect of catastrophe modeling changes and the knowledge obtained from the recent events on their business,” he added.
