US Property & Casualty Quarterly

The first underwriting loss in four years, coupled with slowing reserve releases and a lower investment result, caused a strong decline in profitability for the US P&C industry in 2016. Net income fell 24.5% y-o-y to USD 42.0 billion. Cat losses in 2016 were higher compared to the very benign recent years, and reserve releases were smaller, resulting in an underwriting loss of USD 3.3 billion and driving the industry's combined ratio up 2.6 points to 100.8%.

2017年第1期 网络时代:应对复杂风险

Cyber threats are evolving rapidly due to the growing digital transformation of society, the widespread use of internet-enabled devices and processes, and the changing profile of hackers. Recent high-profile cyber attacks demonstrate that the extent of associated possible losses is also broadening, increasingly comprising both physical and financial damage relating to data privacy breaches and to companies’ tangible and intangible assets, and also business interruption costs. As a result, the issue of cyber protection is rising up the corporate agenda, at both large and small companies.

2017年第2期 2016 年的自然灾害与人为灾难:损害范围广泛的一年

In terms of devastation wreaked, there were a number of large-scale disasters across the world in 2016, including earthquakes in Japan, Ecuador, Tanzania, Italy and New Zealand. There were also a number of severe floods in the US and across Europe and Asia, and a record high number of weather events in the US. The strongest was Hurricane Matthew, which became the first Category 5 storm to form over the North Atlantic since 2007, and which caused the largest loss of life – more than 700 victims, mostly in Haiti – of a single event in the year. Another expansive, and expensive, disaster was the wildfire that spread through Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada from May to July.

Cyber liability: Data breach in Europe

This publication written by Elena Jelmini Cellerini and Christian Lang looks at the consequences of a data breach in Europe and compares the situations in Europe and the US with regard to the major features of such an event. It provides a snapshot of where the discussion stands at the beginning of 2017, about one and a half years before the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force. Watching the case law developing, in particular in the UK which has taken some landmark decisions in this area, is also an indicator for where Europe seems to be heading. The UK intends to implement the GDPR in spite of Brexit.
