AssurantThe figure, reportable in its Global Housing segment, includes an initial view of expected losses related to November’s Camp and Woolsey wildfires in California, as well as a refined range for losses related to hurricane Michael that occurred in October.

Assurant says the California wildfire losses account for between $30 million and $50 million of its overall Q4 cat losses, and were primarily driven by fire damage for lender-placed and manufactured housing products.

Hurricane Michael losses account for between $80 million and $100 million of overall Q4 cat losses and are related to wind damage for lender-placed and other housing products.
