  • Calendar Year Experience: Simplistically, the matching of all losses incurred (not necessarily occurring) within a given twelve-month period, usually beginning on January 1, with all premium earned within the same period of time. Incurred losses will include the change in IBNR More specifically, the total value of all losses incurred (not necessarily occurring) during the calendar year is divided by the Accounting Earned premium for this same exposure period. Losses incurred are equal to the sum of losses paid, plus the outstanding loss reserves at the end of the year, less the outstanding loss reserves at the beginning of the year. Once calculated for a given period, calendar-year experience never changes.

What does it mean when the accident year loss ratio is higher than the calendar year loss ratio?

I am assuming the year, is the 'company year' and calendar year is just that... It can mean that the insurance company is releasing redundant loss reserves. This reduces the losses incurred in the current calendar year, reducing the loss ratio, and has no impact on the accident year results. Calendar year loss ratios generally measure financial performance while accident year loss ratios measure the quality of the currenty written accounts.
