Its efforts to streamline business and focus on core operations are impressive. Acquisitions made by the company will diversify its business and aid inorganic growth. Its disciplined capital deployment is expected to drive long-term growth and create wealth for shareholders. However, its exposure to catastrophe loss remains a concern.
