Willis Group Holdings Public Limited Company Analyst Notes
On July 1, 2014, Willis Group Holdings Public Limited Company (Willis) announced that its reinsurance division, Willis Re, released the findings of its 1st View Renewals Report. The Company stated that the report showed significant rate reductions in the reinsurance sector as the excess capital supply in the market continues to chase muted demand. The report also found a continued benign loss activity throughout H1 2014, which has compounded the softening market. Willis Re CEO John Cavanagh commented, "The current market position is increasingly challenging for reinsurers. Below average loss ratios in the first half of 2014 and reasonably adequate reserving positions mean that, barring any major underwriting or investment losses in the coming months, we will see another year of reasonable returns. This places further pressure on rating levels for 2015." The full analyst notes on Willis are available to download free of charge at:
