CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: U.S. Insurance Brokers Dashboard
Fitch Ratings has published its initial Dashboard Report for the U.S. Insurance Brokers sector.
The U.S. Insurance Brokers Dashboard highlights recent market trends, including better operating results on average in 2013, with strong cash flow and earnings growth from incremental revenue gains and margin expansion. Going forward, Fitch expects favorable operating fundamentals will bring modest improvement in profit margins and interest coverage. The disruption caused by the evolving healthcare environment should be particularly beneficial for the brokers' employee benefits and consulting businesses. Fitch also anticipates pricing pressure in 2014 for certain (re)insurance lines of business to limit near term growth.
