A.M. Best monthly review has a very decent article this month about how the investment losses occured change how some of their managers rethink about how they invest. It's on page 66 or so.

 

Odyssey re was the only one who had positive investment results in 2008 (see chart in page 68 that speaks for itself).

By the way, I'm far from being sure that any change will be really substainable going forward. So we should be able to keep that competitive advantage on our side   8)

 

Lastly, on page 117, you get a list of 2008 asset distributions for top 25 P&C insurers. Guess who owns more than 50% of nonaffiliated common stocks of all the group on a cumulative basis? Berkshire (35.3%) and Fairfax (19.7%).

 

Cheers!
