Global Financial Crisis a Key Driver in Market Conditions for Property, Casualty, and Directors' and Officers' Lines, Says Aon
Date:9/8/2009

nd conditions seen in years. Exceptions seen in the commercial realm stem from industries rife with bankruptcies. Most insureds should expect to see continued stabilization of rates in the short term, while rates for financial institutions are expected to continue to increase.

A major dislocation of markets, radical reduction in capacity, terrorism event or natural catastrophe may affect the forecasts.

In addition to the above insight found in the U.S. Quarterly Market Overview, Aon's financial services group recently issued its Quarterly D&O Pricing Index, which delves deeply into the trends seen year over year for this essential line of coverage. The analysis finds that pricing increased 4.07 percent in the second quarter as compared with the second quarter of 2008. Current rates in the S&P Financials sector (banks, diversified financial, insurance and real estate) are up 14.77 percent while all other S&P sectors (service, manufacturing, technology, etc.) were flat, marking the first time in more than three years that rates did not decrease. D&O policies are typically written for a 12-month period; thus, this year-over-year comparison is a close approximation of renewal pricing and results.

"The delicate balance between the forces holding D&O prices down and the need for rate increases could soon shift in the favor of underwriters," said Michael D. Rice, II, national practice leader of Aon's financial services group. "Fortunately for Aon's clients, pricing in the D&O marketplace continues to remain at soft levels."
