The two drivers of profitability and ROE for U.S. P&C insurers are underwriting and investments.

According to a special report published by Fitch Ratings, more competitive property and casualty (P&C) insurance premium rates and the potential for reduced favorable reserve development as well as higher catastrophe losses in 2015, are leading to a forecast toward break-even underwriting results and lower returns on equity (ROEs) in the future.
