Property Rates in Coastal Areas Will Rise Post Ian
The commercial market composite rate for the third quarter 2022 increased 5.28%.
Richard Kerr, CEO of MarketScout commented, “We are seeing softening in the D&O/professional sector as additional markets expand available capacity. Cyber rates are still increasing significantly despite additional capacity.”
Property rates were up 7.67% in the third quarter of 2022. “Losses from Hurricane Ian will significantly impact rates in Florida and other wind exposed coastal states,” noted Kerr.
