RSA reveals UK adverse weather claims cost
Following the wettest June on record in the UK, RSA has announced that the net loss across the Group’s UK Household, Motor and Commercial Property portfolios from last month’s adverse weather is estimated to be around £40m. Current expectations are that the impact of the continued rainfall experienced to date in July will be around £10m.
In addition, the net loss to the Group in relation to the two earthquakes in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy in May is estimated to be around £35m.
RSA continues to deliver a strong underwriting performance across its diversified international portfolio. However, reflecting the impact of the above events and assuming a more normal level of weather losses in the second half, the combined operating ratio for the full year 2012 is now expected to be better than 96%.
