Total revenues were $596.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $613.3 million in 2011, driven by lower earned premiums. Earned premiums decreased predominantly from planned reductions at Kemper Direct, which declined by $14.1 million.
Net investment income was $72.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, a $2.4 million decrease from 2011, driven by lower yields on fixed maturity investments and higher investment expenses, offset by higher returns on equity investments. The portfolio generated a pre-tax equivalent annualized book yield of 5.4 percent for the fourth quarter of 2012.
