Diamond Hill Capital Comments on XL Group Plc

October 23, 2012 | About:
Holly LaFon

Shares of property and casualty insurance company XL Group PLC (NYSE:XL) increased during the quarter as the company reported stronger than anticipated second quarter earnings driven by improved underwriting margins. These margins were garnered through implementation of a disciplined process of re-underwriting business lines identified as underperforming. In addition, the company benefited from improving real prices in its primary insurance business and a strong balance sheet.
