The Zacks Property and Casualty Insurance (P&C) industry is likely to benefit from better pricing, prudent underwriting and exposure growth. Industry players like Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B), Chubb Limited CB, The Travelers Companies TRV, Cincinnati Financial Corporation CINF, W.R. Berkley Corporation WRB, First American Financial FAF and Kinsale Capital KNSL are poised to grow despite a rise in catastrophic activities. Given an active catastrophe environment, the policy renewal rate should accelerate, apart from the rate firming up. This apart, increasing adoption of technology and emergence of insurtech will help in the smooth functioning of the industry players.

Though pandemic-related uncertainties weigh on merger and acquisition (M&A) activities, a low rate environment, improvement in surplus, and reopening of economic activities set the stage up for a better M&A environment this year onward.
