2009 CA Property & Casualty Market Share Report
The following reports are for the 2009 Market Share of Property & Casualty Insurers licensed to do business in California. The data are from the National Association of Insurance Commissioner's (NAIC) database, for California licensed companies only. The information is the same as reported on the Exhibit of Premiums and Losses (Statutory Page 14), also known as the State Page, of the insurer's Annual Statement. Only companies actively doing business in California (with Direct Written Premium greater than $0) are included.
The reports are "by line of business" on an individual company basis and on a group basis, and are sorted alphabetically by company (or group) name, and by their written premium. The Top 25 Groups' report shows their breakdown of business written by concentration level, which is defined by the percentages of premium written in 2009 by line of business with respect to that group's total business written. These Top 25 Groups represent 77.25% of California's property and casualty industry. Lastly, we have included the Historical Loss & LAE Ratios of a selected 20 Insurers (1997 to 2009) in California for three major lines of business, Homeowners, PPA Liability, and PPA Physical Damage. In these reports, LAE means Loss Adjustment Expense and PPA means Private Passenger Auto.
This year, we have added a section to include data for Risk Retention Groups (RRG) that had business in California in 2009. Risk retention groups are created under the federal Risk Retention Act of 1986. The Act permits an RRG to form as an insurance company and requires it follow the insurance laws of at least one state.
