Hiscox, a FTSE 250 company domiciled in Bermuda since 2006, is a leading specialist insurer with a diverse portfolio of personal and commercial risks. With 100 years of underwriting heritage, we now have more than 1,100 staff, with offices in 11 countries. In 2010, the Group controlled a gross premium income of £1,432.7 million with a pre-tax profit of £211.4 million.
As a market leader in our chosen areas of business, we cover risks that range from marine, terrorism, aerospace, technology, media and professional indemnity through to high value personal insurance, such as homes and contents, fine art, bloodstock and kidnap and ransom.
We are not a mass producer of insurance policies but focus on key areas of expertise and strength. We specialise in protecting people with unusual and often complicated insurance needs.
We plan to significantly grow our business in Europe and North America and create a business addressing the needs of both retail and corporate clients. We will grow our business by introducing innovative products and services and by spreading our expertise to a growing diverse customer base.
By insuring risks other companies find too complex or unusual, tailoring policies to fit individual need and concentrating on profitable business, 'where brains make a difference' to each transaction, we'll continue to build on our success.
