October 2019 Property & Casualty market update: Navigating a challenging marketplace

Challenging is the best way to describe the current state of the property and casualty (P&C) market in the U.S.

The property market is working to recover from two consecutive years of significant losses by increasing rates and tightening terms. Other than workers’ compensation, the casualty marketplace is also working to return to profitability with the umbrella and excess casualty space seeing the most abrupt market shifts.
