The company's core loss was 20 cents a share. Core results leave out nonrecurring items, investment portfolio losses and realized capital gains.

Net investment income before tax, was $268 million, down from $648 million a year ago, Travelers said.

Net written premiums were $7.35 billion, which according to FactSet was in line with Wall Street's consensus. They fell more than 1%, while total revenue declined over 5% to $7.4 billion.

The company reported pretax catastrophe losses of $854 million, up from $367 million a year ago.

Travelers said the net impact of COVID-19 and related economic conditions on underwriting results was modest.
