    • "Fierce competition, over-capacity and low returns continue to put pressure on the industry," says Moody's, reinforcing its negative outlook on the global reinsurer sector (first changed to negative in June).
    • There are positive developments though, particularly a slowing in price declines. Moody's previously believed a 15-20% drop in cat prices next year a "distinct possibility," but says such a severe scenario has become less likely.
    • One reason for the slowing price decline, says Moody's, is non-traditional competitors like insurance linked securities (ILS) are having a tough year and have less scope to cut pricing.
    • Among the reinsurers: ACE, XL, PRE, RE, RNR, AHL, ENH. AXS, ACGL, RGA, MRH, UNM, OTCPK:SSREY, GLRE, TPRE.

    • Following a 2013 in which the number of natural and man-made disasters fell by half, reinsurers could be hit with up to a 25% decline in premium revenue this year, according to broker Willis Re.
    • Combining with the lack of catastrophes is a market in oversupply as pension funds and hedge funds (like GLRE and TPRE) rush into the business - a $50B increase in industry capital, says Willis CEO John Cavanagh.
    • U.S. property casualty reinsurance faces the biggest hit - 10-25% - while European premiums could fall 10-15%.
    • Hannover Re (HVRRY) last week said it expected premiums to fall this year, fueling concern about a price war with competitors like Swiss Re (SSREY) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B).
    • Among U.S. reinsurers: ACE, XL, PRE, RE, RNR.

    • For comparison purposes, David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital Re (GLRE +1.4%) - also after a big run in the stock - sports a 1.31x price to book ratio.

    • Expected to price tonight is a $300M IPO for Third Point Reinsurance (TPRE) which will allow investors to bet alongside Daniel Loeb, but also take on the risk of whether the underwriting operation can be a profitable one.
    • Similar to David Einhorn's Greenlight Re (GLRE), TPRE provides Loeb with "permanent capital" in the form of a low cost float from the insurance business.
    • The stock will be valued at 1.1x book value if it prices at the midpoint of the expected $12.50 to $14.50 range, not too dissimilar from GLRE.
    • The insurance operation is just getting started so there's little to chew on there, but Loeb's history (he's compounded money at 17.7% annually over the last decade) and the reasonable valuation are enough to interest The Brooklyn Investor. Yes, the insurance business is a worry, but Third Point (like Greenlight) is in the business of managing risk and presumably has the resources to bring on the necessary insurance expertise.
