Endurance Specialty Holdings said that it expects loss to be $65m, pre-tax and net of reinsurance and reinstatement premium, due to the Chilean Earthquake and Windstorm Xynthia.

The company said that its loss expectation is preliminary and is derived from a combination of its proprietary catastrophe modeling, standard industry models, an in-depth review of in-force contracts and initial indications from clients and brokers.

According to the Endurance, to date, reported claims as a result of the Chilean Earthquake and European Windstorm Xynthia have been limited. Accordingly, the company’s actual losses may differ materially from the initial estimated losses.
