Aspen Insurance Holdings Limited has reported its financial results for 2011 and for the fourth quarter of the year.
Aspen reported quarterly net income of $13.5m, equating to $0.11 per diluted share.
This marks a decline from the $1.12 per diluted share the firm managed in the corresponding period last year and was just under half the $0.23 per diluted share it made in Q3 2011.
Quarterly gross written premiums increased, year-on-year, from $412.8m to $458.7m.
The firm also stated that it had made an annual net loss of $105.8m ($1.82 per diluted share), compared to a net profit of $312.7m in 2010.
Chief Eexecutive Officer Chris O’Kane said that the combination of global economic uncertainty and widespread natural disasters in 2011 had made the year a difficult one for the insurance industry.
