The reinsurance segment, meanwhile, bounced back from an underwriting loss to an underwriting income of US$42 million in Q3. GWP grew by 15% in the period.

“AXIS delivered another strong quarter as we produced excellent results across multiple measures,” president and chief executive Vince Tizzio said. “The quarter was highlighted by record operating earnings per share on both a third quarter and year-to-date basis.

“The continued positive momentum in our performance reflects the progress we’ve made in enhancing our integrated underwriting strategy to drive outstanding cycle management, deliver consistent profitable results, and generate increased book value per share.”

Brand refresh

Aside from outlining its financial results, AXIS has also launched a global marketing campaign to introduce the firm’s new “Specialty Solutions, Elevated” tagline.

Tizzio said: “‘Specialty Solutions, Elevated’ underscores our focus on supporting customers by delivering innovative specialty solutions that deliver directly on their needs while pursuing our ambition to elevate AXIS as a recognised leader in specialty insurance and reinsurance.

“The new brand identity and campaign illustrate our ability to help customers find solutions in a dynamic risk environment – and turn challenges into opportunities, and opportunities into new possibilities.”
