Marsh Insights: PowerLines, Second Quarter, 2012
Published on: 12-Jun- 2012 | Comments: 0
According to the latest issue in our quarterly newsletter series, Marsh Insights: PowerLines, The power and utilities insurance market appears to be moving from a transitional phase in 2011 to a hardening phase in the first quarter of 2012 for property and, to a lesser extent, excess liability coverage.
Marsh Insights: PowerLines also notes:
The January 1, 2012 treaty reinsurance costs were up 5 percent, to 15 percent, with increases mitigated by higher retentions or the purchase of smaller limits.
Upward pressure on rates continues among the lead umbrella and excess liability carriers, with some carriers being more aggressive than others. We are seeing more activity, with clients seeking alternatives at renewal.
