Financial report summary

  • 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.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic and measures to mitigate the spread of the virus have resulted in increased claims and related litigation risk across our enterprise, which may continue to have adverse impacts on our business, results of operations and financial condition and could be material.
  • We have exposures related to asbestos and environmental pollution (A&EP) claims, which could result in material losses.
  • 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 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.
  • Our underwriting strategies currently rely on the effectiveness of reinsurance arrangements and we accordingly face risks relating to reinsurance, including obtaining reinsurance at a cost or on terms and conditions we deem acceptable, reinsurance counterparty risk and ineffective reinsurance coverage.
  • We may be adversely affected by technological changes or disruptions in the insurance marketplace.
  • 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, catastrophe risks and capital modeling and may be adversely affected if actual results differ materially from the model outputs and related analyses.
  • Any significant interruption in the operation of our business functions, facilities and systems or our vendors' facilities and systems could result in a materially adverse effect on our operations.
  • Any significant breach in our data security infrastructure or our vendors’ facilities and systems could disrupt business, cause financial losses and damage our reputation, and insurance coverage may not be available for claims related to a breach.
  • 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.
  • We are subject to capital adequacy requirements and, if we are unable to maintain or raise sufficient capital to meet these requirements, regulatory agencies may restrict or prohibit us from operating our 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 increased $371 million in 2021 as compared with 2020. Core income for our Property & Casualty Operations increased $344 million primarily due to improved current accident year underwriting results and higher net investment income driven by limited partnership and common stock returns. Core income for our Life & Group segment improved $117 million. Core loss for our Corporate & Other segment increased $90 million.
  • Net catastrophe losses were $397 million in 2021 as compared with $550 million in 2020. Catastrophe losses for the year ended December 31, 2021 were driven by severe weather related events, primarily Hurricane Ida and Winter Storms Uri and Viola. Net catastrophe losses for the year ended December 31, 2020 included $294 million related primarily to severe weather related events, $195 million related to the COVID-19 pandemic and $61 million related to civil unrest.
  • Unfavorable net prior year loss reserve development of $11 million was recorded in 2021 as compared with favorable net prior year loss reserve development of $20 million in 2020 related to our Specialty, Commercial, International and Corporate & Other segments. Further information on net prior year loss reserve development is in Note E to the Consolidated Financial Statements included under Item 8.
