Third Point Re Announces Initial Loss Estimates of Third Quarter Catastrophe Activity
and Year to Date Investment Returns
Net losses from recent catastrophe events are expected to be less than $10 million
Net return on investments managed by Third Point LLC was 14.4% for the year to date through September 30, 2017
HAMILTON, Bermuda, October 4, 2017, Third Point Reinsurance Ltd. (“Third Point Re” or the “Company”) (NYSE:TPRE) announced today that its initial net loss estimate from third quarter catastrophes is expected to be less than $10 million. 
"Third Point Re does not write any catastrophe excess of loss contracts and had only modest losses from the recent catastrophe events," commented Rob Bredahl, President and Chief Executive Officer of Third Point Re. "Our total return business model is to manage our investment portfolio for higher expected returns while avoiding highly volatile forms of reinsurance such as catastrophe excess of loss treaties and other event covers.  The estimated net investment return, as reported by our investment manager, on our more than $2.5 billion investment portfolio was 14.4% year to date through September and we estimate our total third quarter catastrophe losses at less than $10 million against total industry losses that many industry experts believe could exceed $100 billion."
