For the six months ended 30 June 2023, operating income was $191m, up 47% from $130m in the first half of 2022.

Underwriting income rose by 33% to $208m from $157m in the year-ago period.

Across the group, gross written premiums (GWP) were $2.12bn, down 10% compared with $2.35bn last year.

The company attributed the drop to its plan to streamline its portfolio, cut down the exposure and handle volatility, which was offset partially by a rise in rates.

During the period, net written premiums also dropped 10% to $1.35bn from $1.5bn in H1 2022.
