Adrian Cox, ceo, comments "The year has started well with gross premiums written increasing by 27% and growth slightly ahead of our expectations across all divisions. This is primarily driven by Cyber where rates have doubled in the first three months of 2022. Whilst the overall rating environment remains positive, the rate change across parts of our business is beginning to moderate.
The impacts of the war in Ukraine go far beyond those which are financial, and our thoughts are with everyone who is impacted by this terrible conflict. We continue to monitor the situation closely and have assessed our potential exposures across our business. To date we have seen a small number of claims with respect to the conflict and we remain confident in our combined ratio guidance of around 90 for the full year."
