W. R. Berkley unlikely to raise capital after RenaissanceRe, says Credit Suisse » 11:4506/0206/02/20
In light of…
In light of RenaissanceRe's (RNR) capital raise this morning, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Zaremski asked W. R. Berkley (WRB) CEO Rob Berkley whether growing premium volumes within the excess and surplus lines marketplace, combined with broader commercial property and casualty pricing momentum, could cause his company to need more equity capital. Berkley stated that he couldn't think of a situation where the capital the company is generating would not be adequate, even if growth were to ramp up significantly, Zaremski tells investors in a research note. As such, the analyst believes W. R. Berkley is unlikely to follow RenaissanceRe in raising capital. Zaremski keeps an Outperform rating on the shares with a $65 price target.

Kevin J. O'Donnell,…
Kevin J. O'Donnell, President and Chief Executive Officer of RenaissanceRe, commented: "We extend our sympathies to all those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and recognize the immense social, economic and health hardships that many are experiencing, as well as the tremendous sacrifices being made by medical personnel and other first responders around the world. Operationally, we are effectively working from home, and I am very proud of what our people have accomplished in such a short time and under difficult circumstances. While our financial performance in the first quarter was negatively impacted by COVID-19, we are well capitalized with ample liquidity and our core franchise remains strong. I am confident that we are prepared to meet both the challenges as well as the opportunities of this evolving situation, and will continue delivering long-term value." Due to the ongoing and rapidly evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company is continuing to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 on its business and to estimate all of the Company's potential reinsurance, insurance or investment exposures, or any other effects that the COVID-19 pandemic may have on its results of operations or financial condition. The Company expects losses to emerge over time as the full impact of the pandemic and its effects on the global economy are realized. A longer or more severe recession, or high unemployment levels will increase the probability of losses. Potential legislative, regulatory and judicial actions are also causing significant uncertainty with respect to policy coverage and other issues. Our loss estimate as of March 31, 2020 represents our best estimate based on currently available information, including communications received to date from cedants and brokers, portfolio and contract reviews, and other risk assessment procedures. Actual losses may vary materially from this initial estimate. Additionally, losses incurred in respect of the COVID-19 pandemic subsequent to March 31, 2020 will be reflected in the periods in which those losses are incurred.
