Loss reserve is an estimate of an insurer’s liability from future claims. Typically comprised of liquid assets, loss reserves allow an insurer to cover claims made against policies that it underwrites. Estimating liabilities can be a complex undertaking.

Insurers have to adjust their loss reserve calculations as circumstances change.
