Kevin Kaastra, vice president of finance at Fremont Michigan InsuraCorp, said: “Our combined ratio of 108.6%, compared with 98.8% last year, was driven by an increase in the loss and LAE ratio to 75.2% in the quarter, up from 66.5% a year ago.

“The resulting underwriting loss was offset by net investment income and realized gains on investments, enabling us to remain profitable in the quarter.”
