The pressure on reinsurance pricing isn't set to dissipate anytime soon, says Credit Suisse, after talking with 9 of the firms this week. Faring best will be those with higher exposure to Florida (say ACE) - where price pressure will ease somewhat - as opposed to those with more of a national presence (say RNR). Rated Outperform are Aspen (AHL) - with less than 25% of the portfolio exposed to industry headwinds - and Validus (VR) - trading near book despite a more diverse revenue line.
