Our reinsurance operation provides insurance for insurance companies looking to transfer their own risk.

Hiscox Re offers significant capacity and highly-rated security provided by our two independent risk carriers – Hiscox Syndicate 33 and Hiscox Insurance Company (Bermuda) Ltd. Through our underwriting, claims, analytics and modeling teams in London, Bermuda and Paris, we aim to meet our clients’ needs; delivering real value through coverage, structure and innovative product solutions – developed through our Hiscox Re products team. We write a diversified portfolio of property reinsurance and retrocession, terrorism, marine, aviation, crop, specialty and casualty classes.

Where possible the risks we write are underpinned by quantitative analysis supported by our world-class modeling team. However we continue to be passionate exponents of the art of underwriting and look to supplement the science with the skill, expertise and in-depth market knowledge of our underwriters.

We are also active users of third-party capacity through quota share and Kiskadee, our insurance-linked securities (ILS) capability.
