Net income increased by $175 million compared to the prior year primarily from the recognition of $132 million of realized and unrealized gains, as well as an increased level of investment income.

Other comprehensive loss was $223 million during the year, compared to income of $195 million in 2012. The current year loss consists of unrealized losses and negative currency revaluation on the company's investment portfolio.
