Kin’s operating income landed at $5.0 million, an increase of 143% over the prior-year period. Kin’s premium in force also jumped to $343.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, an increase of 54% over the prior-year period.

In 2023, Kin nearly quadrupled its geographic footprint by launching five states – Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Virginia. Kin's growth momentum has continued into the early months of this year, marked by its second most successful month ever for new bound premium in January.

“We’re very proud of our 2023 results. Kin generated an operating profit while maintaining a fast growth rate, and our reciprocal exchanges beat their forecasted loss ratios. We did that while investing heavily in technology to extend our competitive moat,” said Sean Harper, CEO of Kin. “We’ve always had positive unit economics, and with more of our revenue coming from renewals and our expenses growing slower than revenue, we’re now generating positive operating income.”

The adjusted loss ratio for the Kin Interinsurance Network, net of XOL recoveries, was 20.0% in the fourth quarter of 2023 – the lowest for a single quarter in Kin’s history. Non-cat adjusted loss ratio5 was 15.0% in the fourth quarter of 2023, which beat the previous low of 17.3% in the first quarter of 2023. The adjusted loss ratio landed at 28.9% for the year, which bettered Kin’s target by 15.5%.

“Kin’s reciprocals have always performed well compared to their geographic competitors when it comes to loss ratio. However, combined ratios really deteriorated across the P&C industry in 2021 and 2022,” said Angel Conlin, chief insurance officer at Kin. “Now that the industry has returned to healthier levels, you can really see Kin’s outperformance, which is due to our data and technology advantage throughout the insurance value chain.”
