Written premiums were $1.01bn, compared with $1.05bn in the prior year period.
The Hartford’s chairman, president and CEO Liam McGee said, these results were achieved through solid execution, including disciplined underwriting performance, improved investment results and growth in assets under management.
The environment in the commercial property and casualty lines remains competitive, and economic growth has been slow. In response, we are focused on execution – leveraging our capabilities to retain profitable business and to win new business where it makes sense for us, and driving greater efficiency. We are making good progress implementing our strategy and are well positioned for when the economy begins to expand, McGee said.
