Explanation:
Combined Ratio:
a commonly used measure of underwriting profitability. It is the sum of three ratios:
loss ratio - the ratio of incurred losses and loss adjustment expenses to earned premiums
expense ratio - the ratio of underwriting expenses to written premiums
dividend ratio - the ratio of policyholder dividends to earned premiums
The combined ratio measures the amount an insurer must pay to cover claims and expenses per dollar of premium income. Thus, a high combined ratio indicates poorer underwriting results than a low one. A combined ratio exceeding 100% indicates that claim costs and other expenses exceed premiums.
