RenRe third-quarter results hit by catastrophe losses
Bermuda reinsurer RenaissanceRe Holdings Ltd has estimated that losses from certain 2021 catastrophe events will have a net negative impact of approximately $725 million on the company’s third-quarter 2021 results of operations.
This estimate is primarily comprised of net negative impacts of approximately $440 million from Hurricane Ida in August and approximately $210 million from the July severe flooding in North-Western Europe.
In addition, losses from other catastrophe events, as well as aggregate losses associated with these and other events, contributed to the estimated net negative impact.
RenRe’s president and chief executive officer, Kevin O’Donnell, said: “We extend our sympathies to the many people around the world impacted by the quarter’s catastrophic events.
