“IGI produced another set of exceptional results across all key measures in the second quarter of 2023 as we continued to benefit from sustained hard market conditions in many of our reinsurance and short-tail lines, and a more favorable investment environment,” chief executive Waleed Jabsheh said in a release.

“This culminated in net income of $40.5 million, a 73.5% combined ratio, a 36.1% return on average equity, and 34% core operating return on average equity in the second quarter. Most importantly, we grew book value per share by 9.3% in the three months ended June 30, and 20.3% for the first six months of 2023.”

According to the CEO, the trends during the first quarter continued throughout the succeeding three-month span, resulting in GWP growth of 10.5% and 21.6%, respectively, for the second quarter and the first half.

“We are seeing plenty of opportunities to continue to show profitable growth in reinsurance and many short-tail markets where we have deep expertise, while being cautious in other short-tail and long-tail lines where there is more competitive pressure, and remaining focused on disciplined and selective underwriting,” Jabsheh said.
