PROPERTY REDY INDEX - October 2021
MONTHLY RENEWAL PRICING ANALYSIS
WHY YOUR RESULTS MAY DIFFER
The REDY Index shows pricing trends based on average property renewal premium on a broad range of accounts – in all 50 states, with varying loss histories, and a variety of perils and occupancies. Your results may differ substantially from the average shown above depending on these attributes and a particular account’s risk profile. Results are limited to brokerage accounts that renewed in the same month as the prior year with the same total account limits. To remove outliers, the top and bottom 1% of accounts by YoY % change have been removed, as well as the top and bottom 1% of accounts by rate online (Premium/ Limit*100). The REDY Index is intended for educational purposes only.
