Assured Research on Inflation and the Risk of Recession (July, 2022)
In its July Assured Briefing Assured Research tackled a number of questions on the minds of insurance professionals in light of rising inflation and risk of a recession. The industry is recession resistant, but not recession proof is one topic. Another - our industry's pricing power could be adversely impacted by slowing sales and margins across the corporate landscape. Contact us for a free trail and copy of this month's Briefing.
Is the Florida Homeowners' Marketplace Becoming Uninsurable? (April, 2022)
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has called for a special legislative session to address the chaotic and rapidly deteriorating state of the Florida Homeowners’ market. The session will be held during the last full week in May; too late, we suspect, to assuage the valid concerns of reinsurers who might be wondering if FL HO risks are insurable – at any price?

Assured Industry Reserve Study shows $22.3 Bil. Redundancy (March, 2022)
We released our 9th annual study of the industry's loss reserves in mid-March. The two main takeaways: 1) Reserves for workers' compensation remain notably redundant, and 2) Across other lines we are largely in agreement with the industry's selected reserves and ultimate loss ratios. That's good, though it means the onus is on insurers to price accurately for surging inflation. We'd be happy to share our report with those taking a free trial to our work. Contact us.
Assured Industry Study on PFAS - Forever Chemicals (January, 2022)
Why are PFAS called 'Forever Chemicals' we ask in this Assured Industry Study? Because they are going to drive insurance claims forever - or at least for a very long time is our answer. This substantial deep-dive into the topic of PFAS focuses primarily on water contamination and property remediation claims since that is the litigation most active presently. But there will be more, both in our research, and in the form of product liability and CGL claims if PFAS are linked to any 'signature diseases'. We'd be pleased to share the Study with any firm that takes a free trial to our work.
