We will shortly be issuing a newsletter, in which we will cover a number of issues of interest to underwriting members of Lloyd’s.

One of the key areas is the reinsurance renewals that fall due at the year end. Given poor results and increasing levels of natural catastrophe activity, rates are continuing their upward trajectory. Following a round of meetings with underwriters, we will be looking at the 1/1 renewals in detail.

The newsletter be sent to clients in the second half of this month. 

Ahead of that, many will be interested in the views of the broking community. The large reinsurance brokers have issued commentaries on the year end reinsurance renewals.
