Tokio Marine Commented: 

The impact of an active catastrophe environment in the second half of the 2017 financial year is reflected in the forecast losses for Syndicates 510 and 557. Syndicate 510 continues to forecast a loss but is showing a minor improvement driven by favourable movements on the closed years. The improvement to Syndicate 557 is driven by favourable claims movements on the open years. Syndicate 308 continues into run-off and TMK is servicing the existing business professionally, ensuring that there is no detriment to policyholders”.

Commenting on the results  Charles Franks, Chief Executive Officer of Tokio Marine Kiln, said:  

We have had an excellent start to the second half of the year, opening with the approval of our re-submitted 2019 Lloyd’s business plan. The plan is set in the context of an improving market that is enabling us to demonstrate our skill and value in areas where we see underwriting opportunities. We are also seeing improvements to Syndicates 510 and 557 for the 2017 and 2018 years of account, following positive development on the back years and catastrophe reserves.

“The restructure of TMK, which was announced in June, enables us to focus on developing our specialist Lloyd’s product portfolio in a market where we have extensive experience and expertise.
