BERLIN, Oct 26 (Reuters) - Major reinsurance group Munich Re said it was expecting a third-quarter loss of 1.4 billion euros ($1.7 billion) due to losses incurred from hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
The company said it expected losses of 2.7 billion euros from the hurricanes, although it said this estimate was fraught with considerable uncertainty.
It also said it would now make a “small profit” for 2017. It had previously expected net profit of 2 billion to 2.4 billion euros, but cast doubt on that target in September after hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
