Item 7.01.    Regulation FD Disclosure.

Assurant, Inc. (“Assurant” or the “Company”) announced today that it expects to record approximately $99 million pre-tax, or $78 million after-tax, of reportable catastrophes in its Global Housing reportable segment for third quarter 2021.

Hurricane Ida accounted for $87 million of total pre-tax losses, as the event reached the Company’s $80 million pre-tax per-event retention. This also includes associated reinstatement premiums to restore the second layer of the Company’s catastrophe reinsurance program. The remainder of losses were primarily related to the wildfires in California.

The Company’s reportable catastrophes include individual catastrophic events that generate losses in excess of $5 million, pre-tax, net of reinsurance and client profit sharing adjustments and including reinstatement and other premiums. Going forward, per-event retention for second and third events now lowers to $55 million for hurricane and earthquake perils only.

Losses from these events were primarily related to lender-placed and manufactured housing products. Hurricane Ida losses were driven by heavy wind and, to a lesser extent, flooding, mainly in Louisiana.

The Company will report third quarter 2021 results on November 2, 2021.


The information being furnished pursuant to this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act.
