Tokio Marine Kiln Syndicates Limited released updated forecasts for the 2018 and 2019 years of account for its two non-aligned syndicates...

Highlights

·            Forecast results reflect the latest Covid-19 estimates

·            Longstanding focus on underwriting discipline and a market leading claims service

·            The forecast for Syndicate 308 on the 2017 YOA (which remains open) has seen a small deterioration.

 

Brad Irick, Chief Executive Officer of Tokio Marine Kiln, said:

 

“The first half of 2020 has highlighted our strength and agility, as well as the critical role we play as insurers in underpinning economies and enabling our clients.

 

“Our forecasts reflect the impact of Covid-19. As market rates harden in key areas, we are continuing to seek opportunities that are aligned with our risk appetite, underpinned by strict underwriting discipline, in pursuit of our goal to be recognised as a top tier specialty insurer that is known for our talent, our commitment to our clients and our values.”

 

The previous forecasts, which were announced in May 2020, have been rebased to the same exchange rates (US$1.24 and C$1.68). The forecasts set out below take into account all managing agency and Lloyd’s charges.
