The role of the Hampden Underwriting Research team (HUR) is to provide support and analysis on Lloyd's syndicates, as well as to source new opportunities.
This might be new structures to access business underwritten by an existing syndicate, or by supporting a start-up syndicate. Sometimes these can be exclusive opportunities for our clients. This work is backed by in-depth research into the insurance and reinsurance markets that provides the backdrop to the trading environment for our syndicates.
The research team's experienced analysts approach the market from complementary backgrounds of expertise within the Lloyd's Market. Our clients have direct access to the team at all times. The team produces a regular set of reports which enables our clients to keep up to date with the frequent changes in the Market.
The research team's annual ‘Syndicate Profiles’ provide a comprehensive analysis of each syndicate so that clients can discuss their syndicate portfolios with their Private Client Director. For those clients who prefer not to choose their syndicate portfolios on an advisory basis, we also manage discretionary portfolios called Members' Agency Pooling Arrangements (MAPAs).
