Analysis of aggregate trading data on the Acturis System for commercial lines business
Acturis has analysed the aggregate trading data on the Acturis System for commercial lines business in the first quarter of 2009. Despite market rhetoric, the numbers show a mixed picture. In some classes such as combined and fleet there are signs of a bottoming out. However, in others such as property owners average premiums continue to fall. There is still no consistent sign of significant increases in average premiums across classes, although it is not clear how much of this is due to the impact of the recession.
