LONDON, April 8, 2013

LONDON, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

2012 was a challenging year for property and casualty insurers such as
American International Group Inc. (NYSE: AIG), Hartford Financial Services
Group Inc. (NYSE: HIG), The Chubb Corporation (NYSE: CB), and Loews
Corporation (NYSE: L) as record low interest rates and rising catastrophe
losses put pressure on companies' balance sheet. While challenges remain for
the property and casualty insurers, the outlook for the industry has been
improving. The industry is also looking to capitalize on growth in emerging
markets. Insurance stocks ended mostly lower in Friday's trading session,
tracking losses in the broad market, which fell sharply as investors digested
disappointing labor market data. StockCall has taken an interest in these
companies and you can now sign up to download the free technical research on
