The whole sentence is:
The overall findings suggest that underwriters tend to err on the conservative side.

Does it mean the underwriters tend to be too conservative? Or the opposite?
I am sorry that there is no more evidence/sentence helpful in undertanding the sentence.

    Where does the sentence come from, verastar? Why is there nothing more?
    It is from the summary of a report, which is the only part available.
    In this paragraph there are only two sentences, the first simply says "In Chapter 5 we analysed...." and the next sentence is "The overall findings suggest that underwriters tend to err on the conservative side."
