The article focuses on the impact of tornadoes and storms in 2011 in the U.S. on the excess and surplus (E&S) market and the response of E&S writers. According to Kevin Westrope of Westrope, there will be some changes on the property side of the market, particularly if there are any more major catastrophic events. Michael Miller of Scottsdale Insurance Co. expects that yearly financial results will be negatively impacted, causing companies to consider pricing structure and increasing rates.
