Beazley announces results for Lloyd’s Syndicate 5623

The board of Beazley Furlonge Limited, managing agency for Syndicate 5623, announces the following results on behalf of the syndicate, which writes business on behalf of Names at Lloyd’s.

The 2019 underwriting year is now closed and has returned 2.1% on capacity. The 2020 underwriting year currently forecasts to close with a 2.0% return on capacity despite having already been impacted by adverse claims experience as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and natural catastrophe events such as Hurricanes Ida, Laura and Storm Uri. The 2021 underwriting year has experienced strong premium growth and the syndicate continued to see reductions in the expense ratio as it grew over the year.

Adrian Cox, Beazley plc’s chief executive officer, commented,

“As the syndicate completes its fourth year in business, we are pleased to report a return on capacity of 2.1% to our capital investors at Lloyd’ s on the 2019 underwriting year. Both the 2020 and 2021 underwriting years have been impacted by claims arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and natural catastrophe events but are both well positioned to close with positive returns. Looking ahead to 2022, we anticipate building on the strong rate increases of 16% achieved over the past year.”
