Q2 Program Management Update

17 August, 2020

Randall & Quilter Investment Holdings Ltd. (AIM-RQIH) (“R&Q”), the leading non-life global specialty insurance company focusing on Program Management and Legacy Insurance businesses, announces a performance update for its Program Management business, for the six months ended 30 June 2020.

Highlights

  • Contracted Premium of $924.5 million (H1 2019: $431.6 million), a 114% increase
  • Gross Written Premium of $247.2 million (H1 2019: $172.9 million), a 43% increase
  • Economic Commission Revenue1 of $10.7 million (H1 2019: $5.7 million), an 88% increase
  • Addition of 10 new programs bringing the total number of active programs to 36 (H1 2019: 26)
  • Subsequent to the end of Q2 2020, four new programs were signed with Contracted Premium of approximately $200 million, all of which are expected to begin generating Gross Written Premium shortly
  • Expected to enter the US Excess & Surplus (“E&S”) Program Management market in Q4 2020

Commenting on the Program Management results, Alan Quilter, Group Chief Executive Officer, said:

“In the first half of 2020, our Program Management business, trading under the Accredited banner, continued to grow strongly. Importantly, this business has significant built-in growth through the 36 existing programs and 34 different distribution partners with whom we have secured contracts as of the end of Q2 2020. In addition, the four new programs we signed post the half year, are expected to generate in excess of $200 million of annual recurring Gross Written Premium when they achieve scale over the next 18 months.

“We continue to see strong demand from new origination partners as existing insurance capacity faces capital challenges given the magnitude of the insured losses from Covid-19. Moreover, due to current market conditions, we expect to enter the US E&S Program Management market, a large addressable market in which we do not presently compete, in Q4 2020, accelerating our original plans.  This launch will see Accredited achieve its strategic objective of being a comprehensive program management solutions provider in all its major markets.”

R&Q will provide a further update on its Program Management business for the nine months ended 30 September 2020 in the fourth quarter.

1: Economic Commission Revenue represents the Commission Revenue from insurance policies already bound (written), regardless of the length of the underlying policy period (earned). We believe Economic Commission Revenue is a more appropriate measure of the revenue of the business during periods of high growth, due to larger than normal gap between Gross Written and Gross Earned (IFRS) Premium, and the corresponding fees.
