Pole position: Helios seeks more opportunity at Lloyd’s

Helios Underwriting is raring to go as the peak of the current market up-cycle arrives. With its increase in retained Lloyd’s capacity and latest acquisition secured, not even Bermuda will crash the party this year, says CEO Nigel Hanbury.

In January 2023, Helios Underwriting unveiled a 39 percent hike in its Lloyd’s retained capacity year on year and completed its latest acquisition with the purchase of Risk Capital.

With these achievements already banked, it’s no surprise that chief executive officer Nigel Hanbury is feeling bullish as the market enters the “peak of an up-cycle” and opportunities for his firm abound.

The firm offers private capital investors access, or more specifically exposure, to the Lloyd’s of London market, and in the past five years has outperformed the Lloyd’s market by between 4 and 6 percent, he said.
