Our third quarter 2021 results will reflect a change from the “direct” caption to “gross” for written and earned premium as well as loss and loss adjustment expense (LAE) ratios from “direct” to “gross”, due to Root’s entry into a fronting arrangement with an unaffiliated Texas county mutual insurance company. This shift does not impact any historical results and is fully comparable to the guidance provided in our Second Quarter shareholder letter.
Through this arrangement, we route all of our new, and over time, expect to route certain renewal auto policies in Texas through the fronting carrier and assume 100% of the related premium and losses on these policies. This arrangement gives us greater rating and underwriting flexibility that we believe will allow us to more accurately segment risk in Texas resulting in improved profitability.
