A strategy for success – our underwriting philosophy is to maximize our return on equity, subject to prudent risk constraints, on the amount of capital we expose to any single event. This underwriting philosophy runs alongside our adherence to our enterprise risk management strategy and the maintenance of a conservative investment approach which focuses on preserving capital and liquidity. We primarily write short-tail insurance and reinsurance business, giving superior risk and return characteristics. In this way, we aim to create franchise value while maximizing sustainable long-term growth in shareholder value.

In particular, we write a comprehensive marine account complemented by aviation, transport, energy, terrorism, political risk, accident and health, construction, contingency, financial lines, property and treaty reinsurance.
