Argenta Private Capital Limited has published the February edition of its Market Update. This covers a number of issues relating to investment in the Lloyd’s insurance market. In this edition we look at the improving underwriting conditions across a number of insurance lines as well as preview results for the open years of account. We take a look at the issues behind reserving, especially for casualty lines of business. There is also a section on the impact on capital providers of the proposals in Lloyd’s Blueprint, including our view of the opportunities and challenges posed by syndicates in boxes and the modernisation of the lead/follow model.

If you would like a printed copy, please contact us (details to the right); otherwise please download the edition here. As ever, we welcome any feedback that you may have.
