ABSTRACT
In this article the authors talk about some property/casualty (P/C) insurers in the U.S., who have survived the poor economic conditions during the past three years, and have started establishing more aggressive goals for growth. According to the authors, a report from Accenture found out that it is very difficult to grow consistently while still delivering an underwriting profit in these conditions. Only five of the 50 largest insurance companies were reportedly able to grow consistently.
