Hiscox is a global specialist insurer, headquartered in Bermuda and listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE:HSX). Our ambition is to be a respected specialist insurer with a diverse portfolio by product and geography. We believe that building balance between catastrophe-exposed business and less volatile local specialty business gives us opportunities for profitable growth throughout the insurance cycle. It's a long-standing strategy which in 2017 saw the business deliver a profit before tax (excluding foreign exchange) of £93.6 million despite reserving net $225 million for claims in the most costly year ever for natural catastrophes.
We're a specialist protection insurance provider, and a mutual society - so we're owned by our members. In some ways we're a bit like a 140 year old start up. We've an appetite to try new things and an interest in working with like minded companies to create positive change. We believe our size and attitude should make us more agile and flexible than many traditional insurers. And we have a commitment to a fresh way of thinking and desire to help grow the market, rather than just take a share of what's already there.
