Homeowners underwriting losses for the industry show that 2023 losses are tempered by a substantial portion of Ian losses borne by Florida state sponsored entities and global property reinsurers.

Still, individual carrier results are materially influenced by geographic mix relative to the location of recent weather events, and more limited Florida market participation versus other states.
