Business Overview

Lancashire’s role in the enlarged group is two-fold.  As the traditional company market rated (re)insurer operating through its Bermuda and London subsidiaries, Lancashire provides a substantial part of the core portfolio as well as the ability to respond nimbly for example in post-loss situations.

Carrying substantial capital headroom above both regulatory and rating agency requirements, allows the Lancashire operating companies to respond quickly to new opportunities.  The daily underwriting call and the fortnightly risk and return committee ensure that the senior management of all areas of the company are continually attuned to market developments, and get an unfiltered view of the underwriting environment.
