Couple of things from conf. call,  interest was the lowest since I've owned FFH, 2 questions only

 

The one from Cormark was about lowering costs considering the decline in premiums, Prem's answer was that the market can turn and we have to be ready, so we can expect higher cr's from Northbridge and the US cos. til the market hardens.  Also he said that most companies CR is above 100 on the accident yr. and with low interest rates  prices will have to raised at some point soon

 

FFH is now hedged against inflation, deflation and a fall in the market, with all these hedges I would think that earnings will be very volatile from here on out(as they were when the cd's were  in place)

 

 

Also, there was a 36.4 mil loss from the Deepwater spill.  Thought they  got out of marine after Katrina
