Premiums have been invested in fixed income, so profitability has gone down. Relative to the equity markets, fixed income is less volatile, and so their float is safer than some of its peers. For business interruptions and any big payouts, premiums will increase going forward. Long-term, with eventually higher interest rates, profitability will increase. A good company.

(A Top Pick Aug 02/19, Down 16%) Insurance is facing catastrophe because of COVID, though governments will not let the insurers go bankrupt. Insurers will probably cope by raising prices. Chubb has the highest credit rating and its combined ratio is 100%, despite the economic downturn. Chubb's book value continues to grow, though the stock is down 19% YTD. He'd buy on weakness. The 2.5% dividend pays you to wait.

It is trading below book value right now. It is one of the best underwriters in the world. They have a good franchise. They have enough capital to grow organically and through acquisition. It may be more volatile over the next little while. Not a bad time to buy it for the long term.

They are AA. The best underwriters in the business. Insurance companies are out of favor in the investment community because of global warming and other catastrophes. They pass off a lot of that risk and exposed only to 5% of the risk they cover. Not exposed to the stock market as they invest exclusively in bonds.

Has a AA credit rating, combined ratio is low at 88% (a profit of 12 cents on every dollar of premium coming in) so they have cash to play with. In their investment portfolio, it's been 100% fixed income so rising rates benefit them. Global warming has hurt them. Conservatively run. Dividend and book value rising nicely over time, and they're global.
