The so-called cat bond lite transaction was for an unknown cedant. 2018. This is the first LI Re transaction since a year ago and it covers the same risks of California earthquake. The $10m of LI Re Series 2018-1 private cat bond notes issued through Kaith Re have been listed on the Bermuda Stock Exchange. The latest private catastrophe bond, LI Re (Series 2018-1), meant that Hannover Re had now assisted in the issuance of $97 million of securitised risk to investors just in the last week. The underlying transaction would be a one-year collateralized reinsurance or industry loss warranty deal, as are most common with private cat bonds. December 31.

Our core businesses all delivered strong results and show robust prospects for the future, he said. Total loan impairment charges decreased to $19 million from $36 million in 2015. February 24. On the international business side, its more difficult. A fall in loan impairment provisions and lower operating expenses after the sale of private banking operations last year contributed to the increase. Return on equity was 12 per cent, exceeding the 10 per cent target of the parent group. Total capital adequacy ratio a measure of financial stability improved to 24 per cent at the end of 2016 from 22 per cent a year earlier. The core businesses all delivered results ahead of expectations in 2016, the bank stated. The volunteer effort included a programme in conjunction with the Salvation Army and the Eliza DoLittle Society to provide free cooked meals to the needy once a week at Cathedral Hall. 2017. The local economy is displaying greater resilience than in recent years and it appears we have worked through many of the problem loans in our portfolio. There is generally more confidence in the economy. Infrastructure is often overlooked, he added. It energizes our staff and they appreciate that they can go out and do something so worthwhile during bank hours, Mr Watkinson said. Staff from the bank have been divided into 43 teams, Mr Watkinson said, and two teams per week one cooking and one serving make meals for around 100 homeless and poor people. HSBC said that the sale of its private banking operations allowed it to focus on core strengths in Bermuda. The net profit from these continuing operations was $93 million for the year with a cost efficiency ratio of 59 per cent, the bank said. Excluding impairment of buildings, net profit from continuing operations was $114 million with a cost efficiency ratio of 51 per cent. You can walk down the street and put together a half-billion-dollar insurance policy. The decrease was mainly due to the sale of the private banking operations to Butterfield, completed last April, which reduced the number of employees in Bermuda and cut support costs. In the local community, people are feeling much better about life. That filters through into car sales, so the auto sector is feeling very good. The sale of the private banking operations was the main factor in the 19 per cent fall in total assets to $9.76 billion. On the impact of the change in political power in the US and potential corporate tax cuts eroding Bermudas tax advantage, Mr Watkinson said: No one knows whats going to happen with the US tax situation. Mr Watkinson said new mortgages tended to be smaller than older ones, given the 30 per cent fall in real estate values from pre-recession highs and the 20 per cent minimum down-payment requirement these days. In the earnings statement, Mr Watkinson said it continued to be a challenging environment for banks. But this was largely offset by a $20 million gain recorded on the sale of the private bank unit. HSBC added: The balance sheet remains conservative with strong capital and liquidity positions, even after making significant returns to our shareholders in 2016. Mark Watkinson, HSBC Bermudas chief executive officer, pointed to continuing modest improvement in the economy and said the bank had seen a significant rise in demand for residential home loans. And the bank paid a $280 million dividend to its owner, HSBC Holdings Ltd, the global banking group. The recent approval of legislation to enable the building of a new airport terminal was something that would strengthen international business confidence, Mr Watkinson said. We were also able to contribute $700,000 directly to various education, environment and community initiatives, partly supported by funds made available by the HSBC Group to mark its 150th anniversary. The bank is well positioned to absorb the impact of future regulatory requirements under Basel III. HSBC Bank Bermuda Ltd booked net profits of $117 million last year up more than a third on 2015. There were a couple of significant surprises last year and its a very uncertain world and so the international business sector is feeling a bit uncertain. Phil Alvey, HSBC Bermudas chief financial officer, said NPLs included all loans that had been renegotiated even though the majority of such borrowers were now making repayments on time. These are retail banking wealth management, including HSBC Asset Management and Premier banking, commercial banking and global banking and markets. But non-performing loans, making up 14 per cent of the total loan portfolio, down from 17 per cent in 2015. Mr Watkinson said staff had also doubled volunteer hours on the banks time from 2015. In terms of insurance, its a real market. The decrease is the product of the debt being paid off by borrowers outsizing new loans being taken out. Such efforts have now accumulated over 10,000 hours of community service since we launched the Staff Volunteer Community Action Day Programme in 2006, Mr Watkinson said. We saw double-digit growth in lending in the residential housing market last year, Mr Watkinson said in an interview. In its earnings statement, the bank said it took a $21 million charge to lower the carrying value of buildings, since last years decision to explore alternative options for its offices near Albuoys Point. But there is a split in the level of confidence between local and international. So in Bermuda we have to be very careful, because international business is a critical part of the economy and we need it to feel positive about Bermuda and the opportunities here. Total loans and advances to customers were $2.29 billion at the end of 2016, a decrease of 7 per cent compared to a year earlier. The regulators do a great job and Solvency II equivalence was an outstanding success and great work by the Bermuda Monetary Authority. For the bank, its great for team-building and theres a great return on investment and its a great community investment as well. Excluding the buildings charge, operating expenses were $145 million, down $31 million, or 18 per cent on last year. But when I talk with customers about why they choose Bermuda, tax is a factor but its not that high on the list.

October 12. 2017. At the same time, Bronek Masojada, chief executive officer of Hiscox, said: These events are already having an impact on rates in the global insurance market, particularly in affected areas and specific sectors. The company, which is based in Bermuda, said today it plans to increase the 2018 capacity for its Syndicate 33 at Lloyds by 450 million ($594.5 million) to 1.6 billion, driven by improving market conditions. Last week, Hiscox announced a preliminary estimate of $225 million for net losses from hurricanes Harvey and Irma. After a number of years of rate reductions, we are starting to see price corrections, most acutely in affected lines such as large property insurance and catastrophe reinsurance, which we expect to spread to non-affected lines. Hiscox plans to ramp up capacity in anticipation of a pick-up in insurance prices. The move is subject to Lloyds approval. This follows a period of significant catastrophe activity in 2017 in which more than $100 billion of industry capital is estimated to have been destroyed. The increase in capacity is driven by an anticipated improvement in market conditions and a desire to have sufficient capacity available to participate in a widespread market turn, Hiscox said in its Syndicate business forecast today.

There will be no effect on staffing in Bermuda. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act cut US corporate tax rates to 21 per cent from 35 per cent. Youve only got to look at the results of anyone who writes US property business the losses are staggering. Will this affect our residency in Bermuda? Overall, he was optimistic for growth in all the firms segments this year. The group is a leading insurer in the Lloyds of London market and in 2006 moved its corporate domicile to Bermuda, also home to its reinsurance and insurance-linked securities operations. When you think about what Bermuda provides, its a place where lots of companies can bring their diverse sources of income and because we are diverse, it makes the business more capital-efficient. This is not just affecting Bermuda, its affecting the world outside the US, Mr Childs said in an interview. However, the insurer and reinsurer will have to bolster capital at its US business and expects the added costs for many companies to lead to higher insurance premiums for consumers. My view is that they are, Mr Childs said. The good thing is that rates are going up, Mr Childs said. Hiscox has also been forced to restructure in Europe with Britains impending exit from the European Union meaning the loss of the capability to service clients across the trading bloc directly from London. Market pricing has improved and as a consequence we have growth ambitions for every part of our business. But are these increases sustainable? An EU office in Luxembourg, expected to be fully operational by late this year, will cost Hiscox 12.5 million ($17.4 million) as a one-off hit, an expected ongoing cost of 2 million ($2.46 million) and a temporary increased capital requirement of 50 million. No. In 2017, Hiscox made a profit of 93.6 million, or 30.8 million after adjustment for foreign currency fluctuations, despite reserving about $225 million for claims in a year of record catastrophe claims. February 27. In its earnings statement, Hiscox said its US capital requirement would increase by $75 million as a result of Beat. It also imposed a base erosion anti-abuse tax levied on transactions between US corporations and their non-US affiliates for example from Hiscox USA to Hiscox Re in Bermuda. Beat has not helped consumers. In London Stock Exchange trading, Hiscox shares fell 29p, or 2.1 per cent, to close on 1,367p yesterday, after results were released before the market opened. 2018. Hiscox reported a group combined ratio of 99.9 per cent for 2017, an investment return of 2 per cent and a return on equity of 1.5 per cent. The groups strategy of diversification, with a large retail segment that now accounts for 56 per cent of the companys business, has helped to reduce volatility in results. US treaty rates are up about 10 per cent and in loss-affected areas more than that, while in the rest of the world where we do business, theyre up 3 per cent. Mr Childs said he expected the reinsurance segment to grow, helped by an increase in rates although less steep than the company had expected as a result of the impact of last years hurricane and earthquake losses across the industry. Its the same issue for Switzerland, Germany and France as it is for Bermuda. What this [the US tax change] does is force us to effectively Balkanise our capital, put capital in different places. We have made significant investments in infrastructure and brand, both of which will continue. When it comes to the London market, in 14 out of 16 areas, weve seen rate increases. This is less capital-efficient and so more expensive, and more expensive for consumers as well. Hiscox Ltd chairman Robert Childs says there will be no change in the companys Bermuda residency or staffing levels as a result of US tax reform. But we will have to put more capital in the US. Bronek Masojada, Hiscoxs chief executive officer, said: The strong growth and profits in retail countered the volatility felt in our big-ticket businesses which were impacted by an historic year for natural catastrophes.

Its a transformational deal, and not just because it doubles our premium base, Pina Albo, chief executive officer of Hamilton, said. the next piece of the puzzle. Looking ahead, I cant say I have a specific end game in mind in terms of premiums but we want to build further organically and by other inorganic opportunities. Once the deal closes, the company will inherit an additional 180 staff at offices in London, Dublin, Dubai, Shanghai, Los Angeles, Miami and New York. Ms Albo said: Given our objective of building a global, diversified specialty insurance and reinsurance organisation, our agreement with Liberty is a meaningful step towards achieving that goal.
