To our fellow policyholders:
2018 was good to the Exchange:
- Premium written increased 5%.
- Claims and underwriting expenses decreased 21%.
- Net income after taxes was $426 thousand.
- Policyholder surplus increased to $6.1 million.
Those numbers would have been even better except for $184 thousand incurred on old
pollution claims, $109 thousand incurred on Hurricane Florence in North Carolina and
$113 thousand incurred on Hurricane Michael in Florida.
Non-financial accomplishments in 2018 include the release of a new, secure web site
(www.NIEinsurance.com), and the release of a helpful video on YouTube (The Best
Approach to Insuring Customer Garments: https://youtu.be/saNfAofB6Dk).
