PART I

Item 1. Business.

Overview

Alleghany Corporation owns and supports certain operating subsidiaries and manages investments, anchored by a core position in property and casualty reinsurance and insurance. Alleghany Corporation, incorporated in Delaware in 1984, is the successor company to Alleghany Corporation, a Maryland corporation, which was founded in 1929. Through TransRe, a wholly-owned Alleghany subsidiary since March 2012, we are engaged in the property and casualty reinsurance business. Through AIHL, a wholly-owned intermediate holding company, we are engaged in the property and casualty insurance business. AIHL’s principal insurance company subsidiaries are RSUI and CapSpecialty. RSUI and CapSpecialty have been subsidiaries of AIHL since July 2003 and January 2002, respectively. AIHL Re, a Vermont captive reinsurance company which provides reinsurance to Alleghany’s current and former insurance operating subsidiaries and affiliates, has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alleghany since its formation in May 2006.

Although our primary sources of revenues and earnings are our reinsurance and insurance operations and investments, we also generate revenues and earnings from a diverse portfolio of non-financial businesses that are owned and managed through our wholly-owned subsidiary Alleghany Capital. Alleghany Capital’s businesses include: PCT; Kentucky Trailer; IPS; Jazwares; W&W|AFCO Steel; Concord; and Wilbert.

In addition, we own certain other holding company investments. Our wholly-owned subsidiary Alleghany Properties owns and manages certain properties in the Sacramento, California region. Our public equity investments are managed primarily through our wholly-owned subsidiary Roundwood. Prior to its December 31, 2020 sale, SORC was our wholly-owned subsidiary. Headquartered in Golden, Colorado, SORC is an exploration and production company focused on enhanced oil recovery.

As of December 31, 2020, we had total assets of $28.9 billion and total stockholders’ equity attributable to Alleghany stockholders of $8.8 billion.

Our principal executive offices are located in leased office space at 1411 Broadway, 34th Floor, New York, New York, 10018. Our telephone number is (212) 752-1356. Our Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K and amendments to those reports filed or furnished pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the “Exchange Act,” are available, free of charge, on our website at www.alleghany.com, as soon as reasonably practicable after we electronically file this material with, or furnish it to, the SEC. Reports and other information we file with the SEC may also be viewed at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Our Financial Personnel Code of Ethics, Employee Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, Director Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, Code of Business Conduct and Ethics for our Business Partners, Corporate Governance Guidelines and the charters for our Audit, Compensation and Environmental, Social and Governance Committees are also available on our website. In addition, interested parties may obtain, free of charge, copies of any of the above reports or documents upon request to the Secretary of Alleghany.

Segment Information

Our segments are reported in a manner consistent with the way management evaluates the businesses. As such, we classify our businesses into three reportable segments – reinsurance, insurance and Alleghany Capital. Reinsurance and insurance underwriting activities are evaluated separately from investment and other activities.

Corporate activities are not classified as a segment. The primary components of corporate activities are Alleghany Properties, activities at the Alleghany parent company and, prior to its December 31, 2020 sale, SORC.

In 2020, our reinsurance and insurance segments constituted the majority of our total consolidated revenues, as follows:

 

2020 Revenues

See below and Note 13 to Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements set forth in Part II, Item 8, “Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” of this Form 10-K for an analysis of our underwriting results by segment and other activities, and Part II, Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Consolidated Results of Operations.”

Reinsurance Segment

General. The reinsurance segment consists of property and casualty reinsurance operations conducted by TransRe’s reinsurance operating subsidiaries. TransRe’s operating subsidiaries also write a modest amount of property and casualty insurance business, which is included in the reinsurance segment.

TransRe, through its principal, wholly-owned subsidiaries Transatlantic Reinsurance Company, or “TRC,” TransRe London Ltd., or “TRL,” and TransRe Europe S.A., or “TRESA,” provides property and casualty reinsurance to insurance and other reinsurance companies. These products are distributed both through brokers and on a direct basis in the domestic and foreign markets. Domestically, TransRe is headquartered in New York, New York and has seven other office locations in the U.S. TransRe also has operations worldwide, including: Africa, Australia, Bermuda, Canada, Asia (where it has five locations), South America (where it has two locations), the U.K. and Europe (where it has four locations). TRC is licensed, accredited or otherwise approved as a reinsurer in all 50 states and the District of Columbia in the U.S. and in Puerto Rico and Guam. TRC is also licensed in Bermuda, Canada, Japan, the U.K., Mexico, several countries in South and Central America and the Caribbean, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, Australia and Singapore. In addition, TRL is licensed as a reinsurer in the U.K. and India and TRESA is licensed as a reinsurer in Luxembourg and Dubai.

The reinsurance segment constitutes the majority of our consolidated net premiums written and is reported through two major product lines, “property” and “casualty & other.”

Property. TransRe’s principal lines of business within property include: fire; allied lines; auto physical damage; and homeowners multiple peril (which include property catastrophe risks).

 

Casualty & other. TransRe’s principal lines of business within casualty include: directors’ and officers’ liability; errors and omissions liability; general liability; auto liability; and medical malpractice. TransRe’s principal lines of business within other include: ocean marine and aviation; accident & health; mortgage reinsurance; surety; and credit.

Reinsurance contracts are generally classified as treaty or facultative contracts. TransRe provides property and casualty reinsurance on both a treaty and facultative basis. Treaty reinsurance is a contractual arrangement that provides for the automatic reinsuring of all or a portion of a specified class of risk underwritten by the ceding company. Facultative reinsurance is the reinsurance of individual risks. Rather than agreeing to reinsure all or a portion of a class of risk, the reinsurer separately rates and underwrites each risk. Facultative reinsurance is normally purchased for risks not covered by treaty reinsurance or for individual risks covered by reinsurance treaties that are in need of capacity beyond that provided by such treaties.  

A ceding company’s reinsurance program may involve pro rata and excess-of-loss reinsurance on both a treaty and facultative basis. TransRe provides pro rata and excess-of-loss reinsurance for most major lines of business. Under pro rata reinsurance (also referred to as proportional or quota share reinsurance), the ceding company and the reinsurer share the premiums as well as the losses and expenses in an agreed proportion, and such proportional sharing of losses may be subject to a predetermined limit. As pro rata business is a proportional sharing of premiums and losses between the ceding company and the reinsurer, generally the underwriting results of such business more closely reflect the underwriting results of the business ceded than do the results of excess-of-loss business. In pro rata reinsurance, the reinsurer generally pays the ceding company a ceding commission, which is generally based on the ceding company’s cost of obtaining the business being reinsured, such as brokers’ and agents’ commissions, local taxes and administrative expenses. Under excess-of-loss reinsurance (also referred to as non-proportional reinsurance), the reinsurer indemnifies the ceding company for all or a portion of the losses in excess of a predetermined amount, usually up to a predetermined limit. Premiums paid by the ceding company to the reinsurer for excess-of-loss coverage are generally not proportional to the premiums that the ceding company receives because the reinsurer does not assume a proportionate risk. Often there is no ceding commission on excess-of-loss reinsurance and therefore the pricing mechanism used by reinsurers in those instances is a rate applicable to premiums of the individual policy or policies subject to the reinsurance agreement. Both pro rata and excess-of-loss reinsurance may provide for aggregate limits of indemnification.

In July 2016, TransRe entered into a five-year agreement with General Reinsurance Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., for TransRe to act as exclusive underwriting manager on behalf of General Reinsurance Corporation for U.S. and Canadian property and casualty treaty reinsurance business produced by brokers and intermediaries. Fees earned under this agreement are included in noninsurance revenue in the consolidated statements of earnings and comprehensive income.

As of December 31, 2020, the statutory surplus of TRC was $4.8 billion, as determined in accordance with statutory accounting principles, or “SAP,” and the consolidated equity of TransRe was $5.4 billion, as determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S., or “GAAP.”

43


 

Distribution. TransRe provides property and casualty reinsurance through brokers as well as directly to insurance and reinsurance companies in domestic and foreign markets. In 2020, approximately 82 percent of TransRe’s gross premiums written were written through brokers with the balance written directly with ceding company clients. In the reinsurance brokerage industry, brokers are engaged by the ceding companies to place reinsurance on their behalf. In 2020, companies controlled by Aon plc, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. and TigerRisk Partners, LLC were TransRe’s largest brokerage sources of business, accounting for approximately 27 percent, 19 percent and 14 percent, respectively, of gross premiums written. The reinsurance brokerage industry is dominated by certain of these brokers. Due to the substantial percentages of premiums written through these brokers, the loss of business from any one of them could have a material adverse effect on TransRe’s business.

Underwriting. TransRe’s underwriting process emphasizes a team approach among TransRe’s underwriters, actuaries, claims staff and senior management, as appropriate. Treaties are reviewed for compliance with TransRe’s underwriting guidelines and objectives, and most treaties are evaluated in part based upon actuarial analyses conducted by TransRe. TransRe’s actuaries are independent from the underwriting department and are responsible for providing underwriters objective account analyses utilizing available industry and account-specific data along with industry and proprietary actuarial models. TransRe’s actuarial models used in such analyses are tailored in each case to the exposures and experience underlying the specific treaty and the loss experience for the risks covered. Property catastrophe-exposed treaties are generally evaluated using industry standard models, as well as proprietary TransRe models. These models are used as a guide for risk assessment and portfolio optimization and are continually updated. TransRe also frequently conducts underwriting and claims audits at the offices of a ceding company before and after entering into major treaties.  This is because reinsurers, including TransRe, do not separately evaluate each of the individual risks assumed under such treaties and, consequently, are largely dependent on the original underwriting decisions made by the ceding company. Such dependence subjects TransRe, and reinsurers in general, to the possibility that the ceding companies have not adequately evaluated and priced the risks to be reinsured and, therefore, that the premiums ceded may not adequately compensate TransRe for the risk assumed.

TransRe often seeks to lead treaty placements. The lead reinsurer on a treaty generally accepts one of the largest percentage shares of the treaty and therefore has significant influence in negotiating price, terms and conditions. TransRe may decline any treaty business offered to it based upon its assessment of all relevant factors. Such factors include type and level of risk assumed; actuarial and underwriting judgment with respect to rate adequacy; various treaty terms; prior and anticipated loss experience (including exposure to natural and man-made catastrophes) on the treaty; prior business experience with the ceding company; overall financial position; operating results; ratings from credit rating agencies of the ceding company; and social, legal, regulatory, environmental and general economic conditions affecting the risks assumed or the ceding company.

Ratings. TRC, TRL and TRESA are rated A+ by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services, or “S&P,” and A+ (Superior) by A.M. Best Company, Inc., or “A.M. Best,” and TRC is rated A1 by Moody’s Investors Service Inc., or “Moody’s.” Additional information regarding ratings and the risks related to ratings from ratings agencies can be found on page 66 of this Form 10-K.  

Insurance Segment

The insurance segment consists of property and casualty insurance operations conducted in the U.S. by AIHL through RSUI, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, and CapSpecialty, headquartered in Middleton, Wisconsin. AIHL Re, our Vermont-domiciled captive reinsurance company, provides reinsurance to our current and former insurance operating subsidiaries and affiliates. Unless we state otherwise, references to AIHL include the operations of RSUI, CapSpecialty and AIHL Re.

The insurance segment constitutes a smaller portion of our consolidated net premiums written and is reported through our RSUI and CapSpecialty subsidiaries.

RSUI

General. RSUI conducts its insurance operations through its wholly-owned insurance company subsidiaries RSUI Indemnity Company, or “RIC,” Landmark American Insurance Company, or “Landmark,” and Covington Specialty Insurance Company, or “Covington.” RSUI’s operating subsidiaries write specialty insurance coverages in the property, umbrella/excess liability, general liability, directors’ and officers’ liability and professional liability lines of business. RSUI’s operating subsidiaries also write a modest amount of reinsurance business on an assumed basis, which is included in the insurance segment.

The market for specialty insurance coverages differs significantly from the market for standard insurance coverages. The specialty market provides coverage for hard-to-place risks that generally do not fit the underwriting criteria of the standard market, which provides coverage for largely uniform and relatively predictable exposures and is highly regulated with respect to rates and forms.

RSUI’s operating subsidiaries write specialty business on both an admitted and non-admitted basis. Admitted insurers are authorized to market, sell and service insurance policies in the states where they are licensed. Admitted insurers are generally required to obtain regulatory approval of their policy forms and premium rates. Non-admitted insurance markets have developed to provide insurance that is otherwise unavailable from a state’s admitted insurance markets. Non-admitted insurance is procured by either state-licensed surplus lines brokers who place risks with insurers not licensed in that state or by insureds’ direct procurement from non-admitted insurers. Non-admitted insurance is subject to considerably less regulation with respect to premium rates and forms. RSUI writes admitted specialty business primarily through RIC, a New Hampshire-domiciled insurer, licensed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Specialty business written by RIC is subject to state policy form and premium rate regulations. Most of the risks in the admitted specialty market are unique and hard-to-place in the standard market. However, rather than looking to the non-admitted market, certain policyholders procure such specialty coverage from an admitted insurance company based on regulatory and/or marketing concerns. As an admitted carrier, RIC is subject to more state regulation than a non-admitted carrier, particularly with regard to rate and form filing requirements, restrictions on the ability to exit lines of business, premium tax payments and membership in various state associations, such as state guaranty funds and assigned risk plans.

RSUI writes business on a surplus lines eligible, non-admitted basis primarily through Landmark, a New Hampshire-domiciled insurer. As a surplus lines eligible, non-admitted insurance company, Landmark is not subject to state policy form and premium rate regulations and thus has more flexibility in setting rates and coverages for specialized or hard-to-place risks. This typically results in policies with higher premiums and more restrictive coverage provisions than coverages written by a standard insurance company. As of December 31, 2020, Landmark was approved to write business on a non-admitted basis in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Covington, a New Hampshire-domiciled insurer, was formed in September 2007 to, among other things, issue surplus lines policies written by RSUI. Through RSUI’s binding authority department, Covington writes small, specialized coverages pursuant to underwriting authority arrangements with managing general agents.

Pursuant to quota share arrangements, in place since 2009, Landmark and Covington cede 90 percent of all their respective premiums and losses, gross of third-party reinsurance, to RIC.

45


 

As of December 31, 2020, the statutory surplus of RIC was approximately $1.7 billion, the statutory surplus of Landmark was approximately $155 million, the statutory surplus of Covington was approximately $49 million, each as determined in accordance with SAP, and the consolidated equity of RSUI was $1.8 billion, as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Distribution. As of December 31, 2020, RSUI conducted its insurance business through approximately 100 independent wholesale insurance brokers located throughout the U.S. and 22 managing general agents. RSUI’s wholesale brokers are appointed based on management’s appraisal of expertise, premium production potential, loss history with other insurance companies that they represent and the size and experience of the agency. A wholesale broker’s operations are appointed to distribute RSUI’s products on a location by location basis. Producer agreements which stipulate premium collection, payment terms and commission arrangements are in place with each wholesale broker. No wholesale broker holds underwriting, claims or reinsurance authority for RSUI. RSUI’s top five producing wholesale brokers accounted for approximately 82 percent of gross premiums written by RSUI in 2020. RSUI’s top two producing wholesale brokers, Ryan Specialty Group and CRC Insurance Services, Inc., accounted for, in the aggregate, approximately 48 percent of RSUI’s gross premiums written in 2020. RSUI has entered into underwriting authority arrangements with 22 managing general agents for small, specialized coverages.

Underwriting. RSUI’s underwriting philosophy is based on handling only product lines in which its underwriters have underwriting expertise. RSUI generally focuses on higher severity, lower frequency specialty risks that can be effectively “desk underwritten” without the need for inspection or engineering reviews. RSUI tracks underwriting results for each of its underwriters and believes that the underwriting systems and applications it has in place facilitate efficient underwriting and high productivity levels. Underwriting authority is delegated on a “top-down” basis ultimately to individual underwriters based on experience and expertise. This authority is in writing and addresses maximum limits, excluded classes and coverages and premium size referral. Referral to a product line manager is required for risks exceeding an underwriter’s authority.

Ratings. RIC, Landmark and Covington are each rated A+ (Superior) by A.M. Best and all three companies are rated “A+” by S&P. RIC and Landmark are rated A2 by Moody’s.

CapSpecialty

General. CapSpecialty, primarily through its wholly-owned subsidiaries Capitol Indemnity Corporation, or “CIC,” Capitol Specialty Insurance Corporation, or “CSIC,” and Platte River Insurance Company, or “Platte River,” operates in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Through October 1, 2019, CapSpecialty also included the operations and results of Professional Risk Management Services, Inc., which was acquired from TransRe in 2014 and resold to TransRe effective October 1, 2019.

CIC conducts its property and casualty insurance business on an admitted basis throughout the U.S. CIC also writes surety products such as commercial surety bonds and contract surety bonds on a national basis. Commercial surety bonds include all surety bonds other than contract surety bonds and cover obligations typically required by law or regulation, such as licenses and permits. CIC offers contract surety bonds in the non-construction segment of the market which secure performance under supply, service and maintenance contracts.

CSIC conducts all of its business on an authorized, non-admitted basis nationally and writes primarily specialty lines of property and casualty insurance, including the professional lines of business.

Platte River is licensed in the 50 states and the District of Columbia and operates in conjunction with CIC, primarily providing surety products and offering pricing flexibility in those jurisdictions where both CIC and Platte River are licensed.

Effective January 1, 2014, CapSpecialty was recapitalized pursuant to a series of transactions which included the exchange by AIHL of its common stock in CapSpecialty for Series A Convertible Preferred Stock carrying a five percent preference, or the “Preferred Stock,” and the subsequent sale by AIHL to TransRe of 24.9 percent of the Preferred Stock for a cash purchase price based on CapSpecialty’s December 31, 2013 GAAP book value. At the same time, CapSpecialty reserved shares of restricted common stock, or the “Restricted Stock,” which were subordinate to the Preferred Stock, for issuance to the management of CapSpecialty pursuant to a restricted stock plan. In connection with the July 2019 retirement of CapSpecialty’s Chief Executive Officer, AIHL repurchased the Restricted Stock issued to CapSpecialty management, and TransRe transferred its Preferred Stock to Alleghany.

AIHL Re and CapSpecialty entered into an intercompany reinsurance contract, effective July 1, 2015, pursuant to which AIHL Re provides CapSpecialty with coverage primarily for adverse development on certain net loss and allocated loss adjustment expenses, or “LAE,” in excess of its carried reserves at June 30, 2015. AIHL Re’s commitments are intended to cover the statutory collateral requirements at CapSpecialty, if and when necessary, and AIHL Re’s obligations are subject to an aggregate limit of $50.0 million. See Note 5(e) to Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements set forth in Part II, Item 8, “Financial Statements and Supplementary Data” of this Form 10-K for additional detail on the intercompany reinsurance contract.

As of December 31, 2020, the statutory surplus of CIC was approximately $281 million, which included the statutory surplus of CSIC of approximately $61 million and the statutory surplus of Platte River of approximately $53 million, each as determined in accordance with SAP. As of December 31, 2020, the consolidated equity of CapSpecialty was $414 million, as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Distribution. CapSpecialty conducts its insurance business through independent wholesale brokerage and retail agents and general insurance agents located throughout the U.S. As of December 31, 2020, CapSpecialty had 64 general agents licensed to write property and casualty and surety coverages, approximately 153 brokers specializing in professional liability coverages and approximately 256 independent agents licensed to write surety coverages only. Certain independent agents have binding authority for specific business owner policy products, including property and liability coverages and non-contract surety products.

Underwriting. Elements of CapSpecialty’s underwriting process include prudent risk selection, appropriate pricing and coverage customization. All accounts are reviewed on an individual basis to determine underwriting acceptability. CapSpecialty is a subscriber to the Insurance Service Organization, or “ISO,” and the Surety and Fidelity Association of America, or “SFAA,” insurance reference resources recognized by the insurance industry. CapSpecialty’s underwriting procedures, rates and contractual coverage obligations are based on procedures and data developed by ISO for property and casualty lines and by SFAA for surety lines. Underwriting acceptability is determined by type of business, claims experience, length of time in business and business experience, age and condition of premises occupied and financial stability. Information is obtained from, among other sources, agent applications, financial reports and on-site loss control surveys. If an account does not meet pre-determined acceptability parameters, coverage is declined. If an in-force policy becomes unprofitable due to extraordinary claims activity or inadequate premium levels, a non-renewal notice is issued in accordance with individual state statutes and rules.

Ratings. CIC, CSIC and Platte River are rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best.

From April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.

Corporate Activities

At the Alleghany parent company-level, we seek out attractive investment opportunities, including strategic investments in operating companies, delegate responsibilities to competent and motivated managers at the operating business-level, set goals for our operating businesses, assist managers in the achievement of these goals, define risk parameters and appropriate incentives for our operating businesses and monitor progress against their long-term objectives.

We own certain holding company investments and wholly-owned subsidiaries, including:

 

Roundwood. Our public equity investments are managed primarily by Roundwood.  

 

Alleghany Properties. We own and manage properties in the Sacramento, California region through Alleghany Properties. These properties include primarily improved and unimproved commercial land, as well as residential lots. As of December 31, 2020, Alleghany Properties owned approximately 106 acres of property in various land use categories ranging from multi-family residential to commercial.

Prior to its sale on December 31, 2020, we also owned SORC. In June 2011, we formed SORC, an exploration and production company focused on enhanced oil recovery, headquartered in Golden, Colorado. From formation through December 31, 2020, we invested approximately $276 million in SORC. In the first half of 2020, SORC’s oil field assets were written down to estimated fair value, which primarily reflected a significant decline in oil prices, less costs to sell. In the second half of 2020, SORC’s oil field assets were sold at values that approximated their reduced carrying values.

Catastrophe Risk Management

Our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries are exposed to natural catastrophe events, such as hurricanes, other windstorms and earthquakes, and man-made catastrophe events such as a major terrorist event, the bankruptcy of a major company or a marine or an aviation disaster. In 2020, we also incurred significant amounts of catastrophe losses arising from the COVID-19 global pandemic, or the “Pandemic.” These natural or man-made catastrophe events may expose our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries to underwriting losses across multiple lines of business and, in any given year, could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and liquidity.  The extent of losses caused by catastrophes is a function of the amount and type of insured exposure in the area affected by the event, as well as the severity of the event, potentially mitigated by any reinsurance coverage purchased by our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries. Our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries take certain measures to mitigate the impact of catastrophe events, including considering catastrophe risks in their underwriting and pricing decisions, monitoring and modeling accumulated exposures and managing exposure in key geographic zones and product lines that are prone to catastrophe events. Our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries also use reinsurance to further limit their exposure to catastrophes, as is discussed in more detail under “Reinsurance Protection” below.

We assess the probability of occurrence and severity of catastrophe events through the use of industry recognized models and other techniques. Where appropriate, we supplement these models with our own assessment of exposures which, in our view, may not be appropriately captured by these models. In addition, our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries use modeled loss scenarios and internal analyses to set risk retention levels and help structure their reinsurance programs in an effort to ensure that single zone and aggregate catastrophe exposures conform to established subsidiary and group-level risk tolerances and fit within the existing exposure portfolio. We consider how climate change may be changing the nature of storms as well as the frequency and potential severity. Our loss estimates for zonal and aggregate catastrophe exposures are updated and reviewed against tolerances as part of our risk oversight processes on a quarterly basis. Risk tolerances are subject to change based on our view of the risk-return characteristics of business being underwritten.

There is no single standard methodology or set of industry standard assumptions to project possible losses related to catastrophe exposures and the form and quality of the data obtained, including data obtained from insureds and ceding companies, and used in these models are not uniformly compatible with the data requirements of all models. Therefore, the use of different methodologies and assumptions could materially change the projected losses. Finally, these modeled losses may not be comparable with estimates made by other companies.

Reinsurance Protection

General

Our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries reinsure portions of the risks they underwrite in order to reduce the effect of individual or aggregate exposure to losses, manage capacity, protect capital resources, reduce volatility in specific lines of business, improve risk-adjusted portfolio returns and enable them to increase gross premium writings and risk-capacity without requiring additional capital. Our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries generally purchase reinsurance and retrocessional coverages from highly-rated third-party reinsurers or on a collateralized basis. If the assuming reinsurers are unable or unwilling to meet the obligations assumed under the applicable reinsurance agreements, our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries would remain liable for such reinsurance portion not paid by these reinsurers. As such, funds, trust agreements and letters of credit are held to collateralize a portion of our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries’ reinsurance recoverables, and our reinsurance and insurance subsidiaries reinsure portions of the risks they underwrite or assume with multiple reinsurance programs. A summary of the more significant programs follows.

TransRe enters into various retrocession arrangements, including property catastrophe retrocession contracts, to manage the effects
