Beazley announces results for Lloyd’s Syndicate 6107

The board of Beazley Furlonge Limited, managing agency for Syndicate 6107, announces the following results on behalf of the syndicate, which writes business on behalf of Names at Lloyd’s.

The 2019 underwriting year has now closed with a strong return on capacity of 16.9%. The 2020 underwriting year currently forecasts to close with a 10.0% loss on capacity as the COVID-19 pandemic and natural catastrophe events have impacted the book of business. In spite of higher than average natural catastrophe activity this year, the 2021 underwriting year has experienced strong premium growth and this is expected to continue as rates increase into 2022.

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

“The syndicate has delivered a return on capacity of 16.9% on the 2019 underwriting year. While the 2020 and 2021 underwriting years have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and natural catastrophe losses, we have seen positive rate increases across the cyber and treaty portfolio on the 2021 underwriting year. Looking ahead to 2022, we aim to maintain our prudent risk selection and management of cyber and remain excited about the opportunities for the syndicate in this market. We will continue to invest in our cyber infrastructure as we anticipate building on the rate increases during the year ahead.”
