Ranked by share of business, AXA XL continued to hold onto its number one position from the 2022 edition of Insurindex’s London Market brand index, with the firm also jumping up from fourth place to second in terms of brand ranking.

The remaining top ten London Market ranked brands for this year, according to Insurindex, consisted of QBE at number four, Chubb at five, followed by Chaucer, AIG, Arch, Convex and Hiscox.

Besides the aforementioned movements, the other biggest change in the top ten rankings was the absence of Munich Re, which slipped from a third place brand ranking in 2022 to fourteenth place this year.
