Hartford's Consistent Performance Not Quite In Step With The Hard Commercial P&C Market
Hartford beat Q4'21 expectations, but it was a lower-quality beat, with weaker core underwriting performance in both commercial and personal lines. The hard market in commercial P&C is helping Hartford, but not as much as its peers, given its greater exposure to smaller corporate clients and workers' comp. It will take time to fix the loss issues in the auto business, but Hartford's positioning is better than most because of the decisions it made during the pandemic. Long-term core earnings growth in excess of 4% should be able to drive a long-term total annualized return in the double digits, but near-term outperformance may be more challenging given the mix.
