We had offsetting trends in our insurance and reinsurance business, so I believe in best of this quarter to start with a discussion of each segment and then conclude with the consolidated underwriting results. Our Insurance segment exhibited strong growth with gross premiums written of 23% to $525 million. Approximately half of that growth came from the accident and health initiative, which grew by over 120% this quarter, driven by timing issues and the renewal of a large reinsurance treaty as well as new business.
