Over the past few days, insurers have started reporting their preliminary Q3 cat losses – softening the blow for earnings season, which starts around the end of the month. So far a handful of companies (Alterra, Endurance, Cincinnati and a few others) have reported almost $650M in cat losses. This isn’t too surprising, with Hurricane Irene checking in around $3B industrywide plus the Texas wildfires.
I’ll catalog the ones I see at a new page, Q3 2011 preliminary cat reports, which you’ll be able to find at the upper left corner of the home page. On the page, the links take you to a news story or press release with (typically few) details.
