With earnings surging, can you afford to miss out on these FTSE 100 (LON:INDEXFTSE: UKX) growth stocks, asks Rupert Hargreaves.
The FTSE-100 insurer, which underwrites a range of risks including fine art, vintage cars, kidnap and ransom, said gross written premiums on a constant currency basis rose 3.3 percent to $1.16 billion (884.28 million pounds), for the quarter ended March 31. The robust results come after Hiscox reported higher profit and written premiums for 2018 as the industry got some relief following record insurance losses in 2017 from hurricanes, typhoon and wildfires. The underwriter, part of the oldest insurance market in the world, said rates rose 4 percent in the London market since the year started, adding most significant rises were seen in cargo, marine hull and U.S. public company directors and officers liability insurance.

The Luxembourg insurance sector was buoyed by Brexit effect in the first quarter, the national insurance commission said on Monday, with international non-life premiums showing a fourfold increase from a year earlier. Premiums in the non-life sector, including domestic business, jumped by 218 percent year on year thanks largely to the licensing of firms establishing bases in Luxembourg after the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union, Luxembourg's CAA said. Total insurance premiums, including life assurance, were up 46 percent at 9.43 billion euros (8.06 billion pounds), CAA data showed.
Lloyd's of London, the world's oldest insurer of seafaring vessels, is facing its own perfect storm. Old-fashioned business practices, exposure to natural disasters, competition from rival centres and Brexit are all threatening Lloyd's reputation as the place to insure anything from ships to sculptures to soccer stars' legs. Stung by combined losses of 3 billion pounds ($3.9 billion) over the last two years, John Neal, the new chief executive of an insurance market founded in a London coffee house in 1688, is under growing pressure to drag Lloyd's into the 21st century.

The reinsurance fund, set up in 1993, acts as a backstop to insurers paying out claims on property damage and business interruption. The bond, the first of its kind globally and oversubscribed by capital markets, covers physical damage from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear and cyber attacks, Pool Re said.
A no-deal Brexit would leave Britain's trading relationship with the EU subject to World Trade Organisation rules, which do not guarantee market access for service industries like insurance. "This matters because the EU is - by a very long distance - the largest export market for the UK insurance and long-term savings industry," Huw Evans, Director General of the ABI, said in a statement ahead of the trade body's annual dinner in London.
The FTSE-100 underwriter, part of the oldest insurance market in the world, joined rivals Beazley Plc and Lancashire Holdings Ltd in reporting strong profit numbers. Hiscox, which underwrites a range of risks from oil refineries to hijackings, said pretax profit jumped to $137.4 million (£105.2 million) for the 12 months ended Dec. 31 from $39.7 million, a year earlier. Gross written premiums increased to $3.78 billion for 2018 from $3.29 billion.
Britain's wholesale insurance brokers got a clean bill of health from the markets watchdog on Wednesday, providing some relief for an industry already spending millions of pounds on Brexit. London's insurance market, which spans the Lloyd's of London market and brokers such as Aon, Willis Towers Watson, JLT and Marsh, controlled £60 billion in gross written premiums in 2017. The Financial Conduct Authority announced a review in November 2017, saying there were concerns about how large players place business to earn larger fees.

Both are home to major global insurers such as Swiss Re, Zurich Insurance Group, Aviva and Prudential. The deal will replicate the effects of the European Union's insurance agreement with Switzerland and will come into force once that agreement ceases to apply in Britain.

Reinsurance prices, chiefly set in two batches at the beginning of January and July, have fallen in recent years as traditional reinsurers face competition from new players and products such as catastrophe bonds. JLT Re said rate increases were restricted to categories which had suffered substantial losses or where performance had worsened. "Despite another active catastrophe year in the United States, property-catastrophe rate changes were modest," said Ed Hochberg, chief executive officer of JLT Re in North America.
