Financial report summary

  • The COVID-19 pandemic and measures to mitigate the spread of the virus have resulted in significant risk across our enterprise, which have had, and may continue to have, material adverse impacts on our business, results of operations and financial condition, the extent of which cannot be determined with any certainty at this time.
  • If we determine that our recorded insurance reserves are insufficient to cover our estimated ultimate unpaid liability for claim and claim adjustment expenses, we may need to increase our insurance reserves which would result in a charge to our earnings.
  • Our actual experience could vary from the key assumptions used to determine active life reserves for long term care policies.
  • We are vulnerable to material losses from natural and man-made disasters.
  • We are exposed to, and may face adverse developments related to, mass tort claims that could arise from our insureds’ sale or use of potentially harmful products or substances, changes to the social and legal environment, issues related to altered interpretation of coverage and other new and emerging claim theories.
  • We may not be able to obtain sufficient reinsurance at a cost or on terms and conditions we deem acceptable, which could result in increased exposure to risk or a decrease in our underwriting commitments.
  • We face intense competition in our industry; we may be adversely affected by the cyclical nature of the property and casualty business and the evolving landscape of our distribution network.
  • We may be adversely affected by technological changes or disruptions in the insurance marketplace.
  • We face considerable competition within our industry for qualified, specialized talent and any significant inability to attract and retain talent may adversely affect the execution of our business strategies.
  • We are controlled by a single stockholder which could result in potential conflicts of interest.
  • We may incur significant realized and unrealized investment losses and volatility in net investment income arising from changes in the financial markets.
  • We use analytical models to assist our decision making in key areas such as pricing, reserving and capital modeling and may be adversely affected if actual results differ materially from the model outputs and related analyses.
  • Any significant breach in our data security infrastructure could disrupt business, cause financial losses and damage our reputation.
  • Inability to detect and prevent significant employee or third party service provider misconduct, inadvertent errors and omissions, or exposure relating to functions performed on our behalf could result in a materially adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.
  • Loss of key vendor relationships and issues relating to the transitioning of vendor relationships could compromise our ability to conduct business.
  • Our insurance subsidiaries, upon whom we depend for dividends in order to fund our corporate obligations, are limited by insurance regulators in their ability to pay dividends.
  • Rating agencies may downgrade their ratings of us, thereby adversely affecting our ability to write insurance at competitive rates or at all and increasing our cost of capital.
  • We are subject to extensive existing state, local, federal and foreign governmental regulations that restrict our ability to do business and generate revenues; additional regulation or significant modification to existing regulations or failure to comply with regulatory requirements may have a materially adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.
Management Discussion
  • Core income decreased $244 million in 2020 as compared with 2019. Core income for our Property & Casualty Operations decreased $356 million primarily due to higher net catastrophe losses and lower net investment income partially offset by improved non-catastrophe current accident year underwriting results. Core results for our Life & Group segment improved $118 million. Life & Group results for the year ended December 31, 2020 include a $59 million charge related to recognition of a premium deficiency as a result of the third quarter 2020 GPV compared to a $170 million charge in 2019 related to recognition of a premium deficiency as a result of the third quarter 2019 GPV. Core loss for our Corporate & Other segment increased $6 million.
