Progressive  (NYSE:PGR) Expense Ratio % Explanation

Expense Ratio % is the percentage of expenses associated with acquiring, underwriting, and servicing premiums to net premium earned. It can be used to make comparisons between insurance companies as well as measure their performance. An expense ratio below 100% suggests that the premiums an insurance company earned or wrote are more than the expenses it paid to support those premiums.

However, we should keep in mind that the ratio does not indicate an ending profitability. The overall profit is also influenced by the claims, investment gains or losses and other income. The ratio can be combined with Claims Ratio % and Combined Ratio % to get an overall performance of an insurance company.
