    British motor insurer Sabre to pursue $800 mln listing - sources

    British motor insurer Sabre is planning an initial public offering (IPO) that could value it at 600 million pounds ($800 million) after failing to find a buyer, sources with knowledge of the matter said. Sabre's private equity owner BC Partners is looking to list the Dorking-based firm in London in the coming months following an unsuccessful joint approach from U.S. investment firm Centerbridge and Qatar Reinsurance Company, two sources said. The company, which is behind the Insure 2 Drive, Go Girl and Drive Smart brands, is no longer in takeover negotiations and has begun talking to fund managers as it focuses solely on building interest in a stock market listing, the sources said.

    UK to change personal injury payment rate in boost for insurers

    Britain plans to alter the interest rate used to calculate how much in compensation should be paid by insurers for personal injuries, the Ministry of Justice said on Thursday, in a move to reduce the size of awards as well as the cost of insurance. Vehicle insurers' profits were dented and insurance premiums have risen since Britain in February unexpectedly cut the so-called Ogden discount rate to -0.75 percent from 2.5 percent previously.

    British car insurer Admiral shares drop after loss ratio rise

    Shares (Berlin: DI6.BE - news) in British motor and home insurer Admiral dropped 6.2 percent on Wednesday after it posted a weaker loss ratio in its half-year results. Admiral's loss ratio rose to 87.5 percent on June 30, from 85.9 percent one year earlier, due to changes in the government's personal injury rate, or 'Ogden' rate, and after the firm held back more for claim payouts, the insurer said. "Underlying loss ratio was worse than we anticipated, 2 percentage points worse than last year and 4 percentage points worse than our financial consensus," wrote Thomas Seidl, an analyst at Bernstein, which forecast a loss ratio of 83 percent.

    Car insurer Admiral posts 1 pct profit rise, dragged down by large injury claims costs

    British motor and home insurer Admiral on Wednesday posted a 1 percent rise in profit before tax in the year to June 30 as costs from an increase to the personal injury rate carried into 2017. Admiral pre-tax profits rose to 195 million pounds ($251 million) this June from 193 million pounds last year after the government in February announced a reduction to the so-called 'Ogden' rate, which determines the scale of lump sum payouts, from 2.5 percent to minus 0.75 percent. "Most of the adverse impact from the increase in the costs of large injury claims, resulting from the change in the Ogden discount rate, was captured in our 2016 second half result," said David Stevens, Group Chief Executive Officer.

    UK watchdog says insurer Admiral gave customers wrong information

    British motor and home insurer Admiral apologised on Friday after the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said the company gave inaccurate information to some customers who renewed polices in the past two months. Under FCA rules which came into force in April, insurers' renewal notices must show the premium customers paid last year. "The FCA has found that Admiral included inaccurate premium amounts in renewal documents issued to some customers by publishing last year’s quoted premium, before discounts were applied, rather than what the customer actually paid," the watchdog said in a statement.

    Personal injury rate change to cost British motor insurers 3.5 bln pounds -EY

    New (KOSDAQ: 160550.KQ - news) rules to determine lump sum payouts for personal injury claims will cost British motor insurers and reinsurers 3.5 billion pounds ($4.5 billion) initially, consulting firm EY estimates. A government review earlier this year led to a cut in the discount rate used to calculate the payments, to minus 0.75 percent from the 2.5 percent in place since 2001, a move which wiped millions off the profits of UK insurers. Admiral's pretax profit fell by 25 percent in 2016 after the car insurer took most of the hit from the rate change in last year's earnings, while Direct Line (Other OTC: DIISD - news) took a one-off hit to earnings.
