AUTOMOBILE   HOMEOWNERS   BUSINESS   TOWING   FARM

 

 According to a recent email from the Independent Insurance Agents of Arkansas and IA, a recent MarketScout report indicates after inching up to +1% in July, average commercial pricing fell back to flat in August. By coverage class, all rates were flat except auto and property, which clocked in at +2% and +1%, respectively. Pricing told a similar story by industry class, where all rates were flat except manufacturing and transportation-down 1% and up 2%, respectively.

As p-c cycles moderate in response to underwriters developing more effective tools to ensure appropriate pricing, "it appears soft markets are not as soft as they once were and hard markets aren't as hard," Kerr points out. "These tools and increased board level oversight keep the cowboys in check-at least most of the time."

Meanwhile, personal lines rates held steady at a +2% composite in August. For all homeowners coverage, MarketScout reports average rates of +2%. Personal auto pricing held steady at +2%, while average personal articles rates moderated slightly from +1% to flat.
