  • At the half year stage, the Club reported a Combined Ratio of 96.2%, with anunderwriting surplus of US$ 4.3m.
  • Both claims from the Club’s Membership and to the International Group Pool havebeen lower than expected which has offset the impact of inflation.
  • However, there has been a steady increase in the level of claims from the yachtsector including a number of significant claims in the superyacht sector from theClub’s Membership.
  • Inflation will be influential and increases in reinsurance costs for the next year willbe expected.
  • It has been a significantly challenging year for the investment, but the Clubremained well capitalised and that the majority of financial losses remained un-realised.
  • The Managers will review Members’ claims records and operational risks, whenapplying commensurate adjustments in premiums and terms where appropriate.This may include further adjustments to deductible levels.
