SiriusPoint has revealed its annual report for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023, outlining a new strategic direction aimed at establishing the company as a leading figure in the insurance and reinsurance sectors.

The company’s leadership expressed a commitment to positioning SiriusPoint among the most dependable entities in the industry. This ambition, CEO Scott Egan said, is anchored in the integration of talent, expertise, and data to deliver savvy risk solutions.

“Our focus remains on executing against our three strategic goals: simplification, reducing volatility, and profitability,” Egan said.

The year 2023 was also characterized by significant achievements for SiriusPoint, setting a solid foundation for the company’s trajectory into 2024 and beyond. Key financial highlights included:

  • A record annual return on equity of 16.2%, with 10.2% accounting for one-off adjustments
  • Unprecedented underwriting income of $250 million, a core business combined ratio of 89.1%, net service fee income of $50 million, and a net income of $339 million accessible to common shareholders
  • Consistent positive underwriting results over five consecutive quarters and net income growth over four quarters
  • Enhanced capital generation across underwriting, strategic investments, and broader investment activities
  • A transformative Loss Portfolio Transfer releasing $150 million in capital, significantly benefitting SiriusPoint’s balance sheet and solvency ratios
  • An upgraded outlook from S&P Global from negative to stable, reflecting improved financial health and market confidence, as evidenced by a substantial increase in share price
  • Continued optimization of equity stakes in managing general agents and programs

Committed to internal promotions and the development of a vibrant talent pipeline, SiriusPoint emphasized investing in its employees and aligning compensation with performance.

“2023 was a transformative year for SiriusPoint. Our management team, ably led by Scott Egan, has delivered the best financial performance in SiriusPoint’s history. This allows us to enter 2024 with a robust operational plan and clear long-term goals. Our ambition is to be recognized as a best-in-class re/insurer with underwriting at our heart,” SiriusPoint board of directors chairman Bronek Masojada said.
