Travelers posts 25% drop in quarterly profit

Travelers has reported a 25% drop in quarterly profit. The company also warned that potential claims for compensation coverage for furloughed and laid-off employees would impact its results for the year, according to a Reuters report. With the coronavirus pandemic weighing on the economy, millions of Americans are now jobless. Travelers said it might see “elevated claims frequency and severity” for its workers’ compensation line of business as states expand workers’ comp coverage. Commercial insurers are facing broad pressure to cover claims from businesses impacted by COVID-19-related shutdowns.
