Gross premiums written
increased
13.5%,
driven by:
Growth in the property catastrophe class of business of $49.5 million, or 7.0%, primarily driven by rate improvements, combined with increased shares on existing deals and new opportunities across underwriting platforms.
Growth in the other property class of business of $91.5 million, or 27.7%, principally driven by rate improvements, which contributed to growth in new and existing business written in the current and prior periods across underwriting platforms, notably within catastrophe exposed U.S. property excess and surplus lines.
Ceded premiums written
were $380.2 million, an increase of $41.8 million, or 12.4%. This increase was primarily driven by an increase in gross premiums written which were ceded to third-party investors in RenaissanceRe’s managed vehicles, principally RenaissanceRe Upsilon Fund Ltd.
decreased 16.1 percentage points, driven by lower current accident year net losses due to the relatively low level of catastrophe activity in the period and higher prior accident year net favorable development in the second quarter of 2021, compared to the second quarter of 2020. This decrease in the net claims and claim expense ratio resulted in a lower combined ratio in the second quarter of 2021, compared to the second quarter of 2020.
of $315.1 million, primarily driven by growth in net earned premiums as well as lower current accident year net incurred losses and higher prior accident year net favorable development.
Underwriting Results - Casualty and Specialty Segment: Grew gross premiums written by 38.1%
910,602
659,336

38.1%, primarily driven by growth in the general casualty, professional liability and other specialty lines of business. This growth was principally driven by increases in new and existing business written in the current and prior periods, combined with rate improvements.
was comparable to the second quarter of 2020, as the decrease in the current accident year net claims and claim expense ratio, which resulted from lower attritional losses, was offset by lower favorable prior accident year loss development in the second quarter of 2021.
The underwriting expense ratio
increased 0.8 percentage points driven by an increase in the net acquisition expense ratio, principally due to the effects of purchase accounting amortization related to the acquisition of TMR, which favorably impacted the ratio in the second quarter of 2020, partially offset by improved operating leverage in the second quarter of 2021.
Fee Income: Continued growth in management fee income related to increased capital under management

increased by $0.6 million due to higher management fees related to increased capital under management compared to the second quarter of 2020. This was partially offset by lower performance fee income, primarily driven by the decrease in profit commissions resulting from underwriting losses from Winter Storm Uri in the first quarter of 2021.
Investment Results: Performance primarily driven by net realized and unrealized gains in fixed maturity and equity trading portfolios

Total investment return - annualized
Total investment result
decreased $265.8 million due to lower net realized and unrealized gains on investments in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020. The investment result in the second quarter of 2020 was favorably impacted by the market recovery following the disruption in global financial markets associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The total investment result in the second quarter of 2021 was primarily driven by net realized and unrealized gains on investments of $191.0 million, principally within fixed maturity and equity investments, including:
Net realized and unrealized gains on fixed maturity investments, net of investments-related derivatives of $87.8 million, primarily as a result of decreasing yields on longer duration U.S. treasuries and a general decline in credit spreads.
Net realized and unrealized gains on equity investments, net of investments-related derivatives of $65.6 million, principally from realized and unrealized gains in the Company’s strategic investment portfolio.
Net realized and unrealized gains on other investments of $37.6 million, principally from fund investments as a result of fair value appreciation of the underlying investments.
Managed fixed maturity and short-term investment
weighted average yield to maturity was 1.0% and average duration was 3.0 years on total consolidated fixed maturity and short-term investments, at fair value of $17.8 billion at June 30, 2021.
Other Items of Note
Net income attributable to redeemable noncontrolling interests
$113.5 million compared to $118.7 million in the second quarter of 2020, reflecting strong overall results across the Company’s consolidated joint ventures and managed funds in both periods.
Income tax expense
of $13.9 million compared to $29.9 million in the second quarter of 2020. The income tax expense in both periods was principally driven by net realized and unrealized gains on investments, primarily in the Company’s U.S.-based operations, with significantly higher gains in the second quarter of 2020.
Raised capital
totaling over $200 million in the second quarter of 2021 through RenaissanceRe Medici Fund Ltd. (“Medici”) and Upsilon RFO Re Ltd. (“Upsilon RFO”).
Raised gross proceeds
of $500.0 million in July 2021 through the issuance of 20,000,000 Depositary Shares, each of which represents a 1/1,000th interest in a share of the Company’s 4.20% Series G Preference Shares, $1.00 par value and $25,000 liquidation preference per share (equivalent to $25.00 per Depositary Share). A portion of the proceeds from the issuance of the Series G Preference Shares will be used to redeem all of the outstanding 5.375% Series E Preference Shares, and the remaining net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes.
Announced the redemption
of all 11,000,000 outstanding 5.375% Series E Preference Shares in July 2021. The 5.375% Series E Preference Shares are anticipated to be redeemed on August 11, 2021 for $275.0 million plus accrued and unpaid dividends thereon. Following the redemption, no 5.375% Series E Preference Shares will remain outstanding.
RenaissanceRe continues to monitor COVID-19 and expects that there may be significant industry losses
RenaissanceRe continues to evaluate industry trends and potential exposure associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and expects historically significant industry losses to emerge over time as the full impact of the pandemic and its effects on the global economy are realized. Net claims and claim expenses incurred associated with the COVID-19 pandemic were not significant in the second quarter of 2021.
RenaissanceRe continues to actively monitor information received from or reported by clients, brokers, industry actuaries, regulators, courts, and others, and to assess that information in the context of its own portfolio. Loss estimates represent RenaissanceRe’s best estimate based on currently available information, and actual losses may vary materially from these estimates.

In addition to the GAAP financial measures set forth in this Press Release, the Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G. The Company has provided these financial measures in previous investor communications and the Company’s management believes that these measures are important to investors and other interested persons, and that investors and such other persons benefit from having a consistent basis for comparison between quarters and for comparison with other companies within the industry. These measures may not, however, be comparable to similarly titled measures used by companies outside of the insurance industry. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these non-GAAP measures in assessing the Company’s overall financial performance.
Operating Income (Loss) Available (Attributable) to RenaissanceRe Common Shareholders and Operating Return on Average Common Equity - Annualized
The Company uses “operating income (loss) available (attributable) to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” as a measure to evaluate the underlying fundamentals of its operations and believes it to be a useful measure of its corporate performance. “Operating income (loss) available (attributable) to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” as used herein differs from “net income (loss) attributable to RenaissanceRe common shareholders,” which the Company believes is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, by the exclusion of net realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments, excluding other investments - catastrophe bonds, net foreign exchange gains and losses, corporate expenses associated with the acquisition of TMR and the subsequent sale of RenaissanceRe (UK) Limited (“RenaissanceRe UK”), the income tax expense or benefit associated with these adjustments and the portion of these adjustments attributable to the Company's redeemable noncontrolling interests. The Company’s management believes that “operating income (loss) available (attributable) to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” is useful to investors because it more accurately measures and predicts the Company’s results of operations by removing the variability arising from: fluctuations in the fair value of the Company’s fixed maturity investment portfolio, equity investments trading, other investments (excluding catastrophe bonds) and investments-related derivatives; fluctuations in foreign exchange rates; corporate expenses associated with the acquisition of TMR and the subsequent sale of RenaissanceRe UK; the associated income tax expense or benefit of these adjustments; and the portion of these adjustments attributable to the Company's redeemable noncontrolling interests. The Company also uses “operating income (loss) available (attributable) to RenaissanceRe common shareholders” to calculate “operating income (loss) available (attributable) to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted” and “operating return on average common equity - annualized.” The following table is a reconciliation of: (1) net income (loss) attributable to RenaissanceRe common shareholders to “operating income (loss) available (attributable) to RenaissanceRe common shareholders”; (2) net income (loss) attributable to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted to “operating income (loss) available (attributable) to RenaissanceRe common shareholders per common share - diluted”; and (3) return on average common equity - annualized to “operating return on average common equity - annualized.” Comparative information for all prior periods has been updated to conform to the current methodology and presentation.

Tangible Book Value Per Common Share and Tangible Book Value Per Common Share Plus Accumulated Dividends
The Company has included in this Press Release “tangible book value per common share” and “tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends.” “Tangible book value per common share” is defined as book value per common share excluding goodwill and intangible assets per share. “Tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends” is defined as book value per common share excluding goodwill and intangible assets per share, plus accumulated dividends. The Company’s management believes “tangible book value per common share” and “tangible book value per common share plus accumulated dividends” are useful to investors because they provide a more accurate measure of the realizable value of shareholder returns, excluding the impact of goodwill and intangible assets.
