Neill A. Currie, CEO, commented: "As we report third quarter results today, our thoughts are primarily with the families, communities and businesses impacted by Sandy and the loss of life and widespread damage they face. We stand ready to do our part in supporting clients and partners as they assess their needs in the aftermath of this storm.

RenaissanceRe had a strong third quarter with growth in tangible book value per share, adjusted for dividends, of 5.3%. Our net income and operating income were $180.7 million and $104.4 million, respectively, driven by strong underwriting profits and investment returns. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we generated a 15.4% annualized operating return on equity and have grown our tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends, our principal measure of financial performance, by 16.6%."

Mr. Currie added: “We have experienced significant growth this year, deploying capital in an attractive property catastrophe market, which has resulted in an excellent portfolio of risks. This, combined with our access to multiple sources of capital and our experienced underwriting team, provides us with a strong platform from which to approach the January 1st renewal season.”
