The Hartford Reports Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

The loss ratio of 76.7% in third quarter 2013 compared with 79.3% in third quarter 2012, a 2.6 point improvement. The group disability loss ratio, which includes both short-term and long-term disability, improved by 3.6 points to 87.9% from 91.5% in third quarter 2012, reflecting improved pricing and favorable long-term disability recoveries and incidence trends.

In third quarter 2013, fully insured premiums in Group Benefits were $817 million, a 12% decrease compared with $926 million in third quarter 2012. The reduction in premiums was primarily due to new business and renewal pricing discipline, the non-renewal of the largest account in this segment due to pricing and other considerations, and management actions on the Association block of business.

Third quarter 2013 net income and core earnings for Mutual Funds were comparable to third quarter 2012 due to higher revenue from the change in average assets under management, offset by increased expenses. The change in operating expenses was driven by higher variable distribution-related expenses combined with increased marketing and advertising expenses.
