Benchmark Survey Book 2009 - Survey Contributor
Property insurance premiums for 2008 skyrocketed not only in hurricane-exposed coastal areas, but also shot up sharply in California as lessons learned from the hurricane losses of 2005 were factored into earthquake pricing models. But while premiums for properties in catastrophe-exposed regions were off the chart, insurance costs for property insurance in other regions and for most other lines of business continued the downward march begun in late 2003. The net effect, including slightly lower administrative costs, was a 9.2% decrease in average Total Cost of Risk for all companies participating in the 2006 RIMS Benchmark Survey™.
The 2009 RIMS Benchmark Survey™ summarizes insurance program information received from more than 1,200 US and Canadian companies, representing more than $20 billion in premium. The 2009 RIMS Benchmark Survey™ book and companion online service are the most comprehensive and trusted information resources available to risk managers for managing the cost of risk.
