Fairfax exposure to Japan

This is an excerpt from the 2010 Annual Report of Odissey Re:

We wrote $539 million of gross premiums in EuroAsia in 2010, a decrease of 3.7% from the previous year. […] Meanwhile, premiums written from Singapore grew 24%, mainly due to expanded property writings in Japan and China. […] The business mix of our portfolio by class remained stable in 2010. Property business continues to be the main emphasis of the portfolio, accounting for two-thirds of our volume in the Division. […] The portfolio is well spread and geographically diverse; we write business in 64 countries. France and Japan continue to be our largest markets, between them accounting for 35% of business written in the Division.
