New Rates – November 24, 2014

Greetings One and All,

Here’s hoping you have time this week to set aside the pressures of the 1/1s and have a family Thanksgiving. I tend to fall into a turkey coma after the meal only to wake up and want more. There are lessons to be learned at Thanksgiving like one I learned about tact several years ago when I referred to my Mother-in-Law’s (May her memory be a blessing) creamed baby onions as “goy food.” You either get that or you don’t.
Rate increases for this report range from zero to Markel’s 9.3% increase, with most in the 3% range. Of note are Old Republic’s 6.6% and Berkshire’s California is Co’s increase of 2.2%. As always our team is living at the CDI offices and we are updating rates within two days of filing.
