FYI — NYTimes — Irene Adds to a Bad Year for Insurance Industry

Irene Damage May Hit $7 Billion, Adding to Insurer Woes – NYTimes.com — This New York Times story provides an interesting recap of the disaster-related losses the insurance industry has faced in 2011, and how 2011 compares with earlier years.

I also think it serves as a useful reminder that a common investor view of catastrophe events — as a potential catalyst for price firming — isn’t necessarily the view taken by the property casualty industry’s other constituencies (policyholders, regulators, communities, employees, etc.).

Insurance-sector investor relations teams are well served by keeping the reality of integrated communications in mind when preparing materials for investor audiences.
