The aftereffects of Hurricane Wilma will not damage the credit of insurers or reinsurers, despite the estimated $12 billion losses it inflicted on the industry, according to a new report from Moody's Investors Service. The report, "Hurricane Wilma: A Fast Moving Storm With Significant Impact to the Property & Casualty Insurance Industry," noted that carriers doing business in Florida are better prepared to deal with catastrophes than in other states and said some property-casualty companies have already recapitalized from their hurricane losses.
