Our results for the third quarter reflect the climate-change driven frequency of catastrophic events impacting the world, but these are risks that we understand well and are paid to take. As we approach the January renewal, I am confident we will successfully execute our strategy and profitably deploy significant capital by helping our customers solve their biggest problems."

Third Quarter of 2020 Summary

  • Net negative impact on net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders of $321.7 million resulting from Hurricane Laura, Hurricane Sally, the wildfires occurring in California, Oregon and Washington (the "Q3 2020 Wildfires"), other catastrophe events including the August 2020 derecho which impacted the U.S. Midwest, Hurricane Isaias, and Typhoon Maysak (the "Other Q3 2020 Catastrophe Events"), and loss estimates associated with aggregate loss contracts on these and other events in the third quarter of 2020 (collectively, the "Q3 2020 Large Loss Events").
  • Gross premiums written increased by $282.0 million, or 32.7%, to $1.1 billion, in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019, driven by an increase of $168.6 million in the Casualty and Specialty segment and an increase of $113.4 million in the Property segment.

The third quarter of 2019 included the impacts of Hurricane Dorian and Typhoon Faxai (collectively, the "Q3 2019 Catastrophe Events"), which resulted in an underwriting loss of $181.9 million and added 20.6 percentage points to the combined ratio.
  • Total investment result was $307.8 million in the third quarter of 2020, generating an annualized total investment return of 6.2%, compared to $145.8 million and an annualized total investment return of 3.6% in the third quarter of 2019.

Net Negative Impact

Net negative impact includes the sum of estimates of net claims and claim expenses incurred, earned reinstatement premiums assumed and ceded, lost profit commissions and redeemable noncontrolling interest. The Company's estimates of net negative impact are based on a review of its potential exposures, preliminary discussions with certain counterparties and catastrophe modeling techniques. The Company's actual net negative impact, both individually and in the aggregate, may vary from these estimates, perhaps materially. Changes in these estimates will be recorded in the period in which they occur.

There remains meaningful uncertainty regarding the estimates and the nature and extent of the losses from catastrophe events, driven by the magnitude and recent occurrence of each event, the geographic areas in which the events occurred, relatively limited claims data received to date, the contingent nature of business interruption and other exposures, potential uncertainties relating to reinsurance recoveries and other factors inherent in loss estimation, among other things.

The financial data in the table below provides additional information detailing the net negative impact of the Q3 2020 Large Loss Events on the Company's consolidated financial statements in the third quarter of 2020.

Underwriting Results by Segment

Property Segment

Gross premiums written in the Property segment were $427.8 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $113.4 million, or 36.1%, compared to $314.4 million in the third quarter of 2019.

Gross premiums written in the catastrophe class of business were $179.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $76.9 million, or 74.8%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. Gross written premiums in the third quarter of 2020 included $52.9 million of reinstatement premiums associated with the Q3 2020 Large Loss Events, as compared to $23.1 million of reinstatement premiums written in the third quarter of 2019 associated with the Q3 2019 Catastrophe Events. In addition, gross written premiums in the third quarter of 2019 included $26.4 million of negative premium adjustments related to the business of the third-party capital vehicles that the Company manages as a result of the acquisition of Tokio Millennium Re AG (now known as RenaissanceRe Europe AG), Tokio Millennium Re (UK) Limited (now known as RenaissanceRe (UK) Limited) ("RenaissanceRe UK") and their subsidiaries (collectively, "TMR"). The negative premium adjustments were fully ceded and were reflected in ceded premiums written, resulting in no impact to the Company's results of operations in the third quarter of 2019.

Gross premiums written in the other property class of business were $248.1 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $36.5 million, or 17.2%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. The increase in gross premiums written in the other property class of business was primarily driven by growth from existing relationships and new opportunities across a number of the Company's underwriting platforms.

Ceded premiums written in the Property segment were $49.1 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $37.6 million, or 329.6%, compared to the third quarter of 2019. In the third quarter of 2020, ceded premiums written included certain of the gross premiums written ceded to third-party investors in the Company's managed vehicles, primarily RenaissanceRe Upsilon Fund Ltd. Ceded premiums written in the third quarter of 2019 included $26.4 million negative premium adjustments related to the business of the third-party capital vehicles that the Company manages as a result of the acquisition of TMR, as discussed above.

The Property segment incurred an underwriting loss of $206.6 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to an underwriting loss of $7.7 million in the third quarter of 2019. In the third quarter of 2020, the Property segment generated a net claims and claim expense ratio of 114.4%, an underwriting expense ratio of 25.6% and a combined ratio of 140.0%, compared to 76.1%, 25.6% and 101.7%, respectively, in the third quarter of 2019. The underwriting result and combined ratio in the third quarter of 2020 were principally impacted by the Q3 2020 Large Loss Events, which resulted in a net negative impact on the Property segment underwriting result of $412.8 million and added 84.4 percentage points to the Property segment combined ratio. In comparison, the third quarter of 2019 was impacted by the Q3 2019 Catastrophe Events, which resulted in a net negative impact on the Property segment underwriting result of $178.9 million and added 42.3 percentage points to the Property segment combined ratio.

Casualty and Specialty Segment

Gross premiums written in the Casualty and Specialty segment were $715.3 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of $168.6 million, or 30.8%, as compared to the third quarter of 2019. This increase was primarily due to growth from new and existing business opportunities written in the current and prior periods across various classes of business within the segment, partially offset by the non-renewal of a portion of the business acquired in connection with the acquisition of TMR.

The Casualty and Specialty segment generated underwriting income of $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $4.5 million in the third quarter of 2019. In the third quarter of 2020, the Casualty and Specialty segment generated a net claims and claim expense ratio of 72.6%, an underwriting expense ratio of 27.3% and a combined ratio of 99.9%, compared to 68.4%, 30.6% and 99.0%, respectively, in the third quarter of 2019.

The increase in the net claims and claim expense ratio of 4.2 percentage points was principally the result of higher current accident year losses in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019. The net claims and claim expense ratio was impacted by net losses resulting from the impact of Hurricane Laura and the purchase of an adverse development cover associated with RenaissanceRe Syndicate 1458's casualty reserves, which combined to add 3.2 percentage points. While the net claims and claim expense ratio was also impacted by increased reserves in our mortgage guaranty book within our financial lines business, there was an offsetting impact to acquisition expenses as a result of reduced profit commission expense associated with this business. The underwriting expense ratio in the Casualty and Specialty segment decreased 3.3 percentage points, to 27.3%, in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter of 2019, driven by lower acquisition and operating expense ratios. The decrease in profit commission expense noted above was the principal driver of the decrease in acquisition costs. Operating expenses were impacted by reduced travel, marketing and office operational expenses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19

The Company continues to evaluate industry trends and its own potential exposure associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and expects historically significant industry losses to emerge over time as the full impact of the pandemic and its effects on the global economy are realized. Among other things, the Company continues to actively monitor information received from or reported by clients, brokers, industry actuaries, regulators, courts, and others, and to assess that information in the context of its own portfolio. Our loss estimates represent our best estimate based on currently available information, and actual losses may vary materially from these estimates.

Other Items

  • The Company's total investment result, which includes the sum of net investment income and net realized and unrealized gains on investments, was a gain of $307.8 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to a gain of $145.8 million in the third quarter of 2019, an increase of $162.0 million. The primary driver of the total investment result in the third quarter of 2020 was net realized and unrealized gains on investments of $224.2 million, principally within the equity and fixed maturity investments trading portfolios.
  • Net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interests in the third quarter of 2020 was $19.3 million, compared to $62.1 million in the third quarter of 2019. The decrease was primarily driven by underwriting losses in DaVinciRe Holdings Ltd., partially offset by an increase in the net income of RenaissanceRe Medici Fund Ltd. ("Medici") compared to the third quarter of 2019.
  • In the third quarter of 2020, total fee income decreased by $13.6 million, to $18.4 million, compared to $32.0 million in the third quarter of 2019, primarily driven by a decrease in performance fee income due to lower underlying performance of the Company's joint ventures and structured reinsurance products, primarily related to the Q3 2020 Large Loss Events, partially offset by an increase in the dollar value of managed capital compared to the third quarter of 2019.
  • In the third quarter of 2020, corporate expenses increased by $34.2 million, to $48.1 million, compared to $13.8 million in the third quarter of 2019, primarily driven by the $30.2 million loss on the sale of RenaissanceRe UK on August 18, 2020, as well as related transaction and other expenses, and expenses associated with senior management departures during the quarter. The loss on sale includes amounts related to prior purchase GAAP adjustments and cumulative currency translation adjustments recorded since the acquisition of RenaissanceRe UK.
  • Income tax benefit was $8.2 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to income tax expense of $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2019. The income tax benefit was principally driven by lower underwriting performance and other miscellaneous items in the U.S., including amounts resulting from the continued impacts of U.S. tax reform, partially offset by investment gains, primarily in the U.S. based operations.
  • Net foreign exchange gains of $17.4 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to net foreign exchange losses of $8.3 million in the third quarter of 2019. The net foreign exchange gains were primarily driven by gains attributable to third-party investors in Medici and miscellaneous foreign exchange gains in the Company's operations with non-U.S. dollar functional currencies.
  • Hurricane Delta, a Category 2 hurricane, made landfall on the Yucatán Peninsula on October 7, 2020, and subsequently in Louisiana on October 9, 2020, causing widespread flooding and damage, including in the region impacted by Hurricane Laura. The Company is also monitoring Hurricane Zeta, which made landfall on October 26, 2020 on the Yucatán Peninsula and is currently in the Gulf of Mexico. Additionally, wildfires impacting several Western U.S. states are ongoing.

Comments on Regulation G

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this Press Release, the Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G. The Company has provided these financial measures in previous investor communications and the Company's management believes that these measures are important to investors and other interested persons, and that investors and such other persons benefit from having a consistent basis for comparison between quarters and for comparison with other companies within the industry. These measures may not, however, be comparable to similarly titled measures used by companies outside of the insurance industry. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these non-GAAP measures in assessing the Company's overall financial performance.

Operating (Loss) Income (Attributable) Available to RenaissanceRe Common Shareholders and Operating Return on Average Common Equity - Annualized

The Company uses "operating (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders" as a measure to evaluate the underlying fundamentals of its operations and believes it to be a useful measure of its corporate performance. "Operating (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders" as used herein differs from "net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders," which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, by the exclusion of net realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments, excluding other investments - catastrophe bonds, net foreign exchange gains and losses, corporate expenses associated with the acquisition of TMR and the subsequent sale of RenaissanceRe UK, the income tax expense or benefit associated with these adjustments and the portion of these adjustments attributable to the Company's redeemable noncontrolling interests." The Company's management believes that "operating (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders" is useful to investors because it more accurately measures and predicts the Company's results of operations by removing the variability arising from: fluctuations in the fair value of the Company's fixed maturity investment portfolio, equity investments trading, other investments (excluding catastrophe bonds) and investments-related derivatives; fluctuations in foreign exchange rates; corporate expenses associated with the acquisition of TMR and the subsequent sale of RenaissanceRe UK; the associated income tax expense or benefit of these adjustments; and the portion of these adjustments attributable to the Company's redeemable noncontrolling interests. The Company also uses "operating (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders" to calculate "operating (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted" and "operating return on average common equity - annualized." The following table is a reconciliation of: (1) net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders to "operating (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders"; (2) net income available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted to "operating (loss) income (attributable) available to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted"; and (3) return on average common equity - annualized to "operating return on average common equity - annualized." Comparative information for all prior periods has been updated to conform to the current methodology and presentation.

Tangible Book Value Per Common Share and Tangible Book Value Per Common Share Plus Accumulated Dividends

The Company has included in this Press Release "tangible book value per common share" and "tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends." "Tangible book value per common share" is defined as book value per common share excluding goodwill and intangible assets per share. "Tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends" is defined as book value per common share excluding goodwill and intangible assets per share, plus accumulated dividends. The Company's management believes "tangible book value per common share" and "tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends" are useful to investors because they provide a more accurate measure of the realizable value of shareholder returns, excluding the impact of goodwill and intangible assets. The following table is a reconciliation of book value per common share to "tangible book value per common share" and "tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends."
