Starting with the 2017 year of account results, and Syndicate 510 with capacity of £1.13 billion, has a forecast range as at November 2019 of -6.6% to -1.6%, which compares with a previous forecast range as at August 2019 of -11% to -6%.

With a new strategy and an outstanding leadership team, TMK is in a strong position to tackle the challenges and opportunities ahead.”

The firm notes that the impact of an active catastrophe loss landscape in 2017 is reflected in the forecast losses for both Syndicate 510 and 557, while improvements to the forecasts are a result of back year releases on the closed years of account.

For the 2018 year of account, Syndicate 510 with capacity of £1.14 billion, has a forecast range as at November 2019 of -5% to -0.0%, which compares with a previous forecast range as at August 2019 of -5% to -0.0%.
