About Hiscox

Strategy and values

Total Group controlled income for 2016

Our ambition is to be a highly respected specialist insurer with a diverse portfolio by product and geography. We believe that building balance between catastrophe-exposed business and less volatile local specialty business gives us opportunities for profitable growth throughout the insurance cycle.

Our strategy is:

  • To use our underwriting expertise in Bermuda and London to write larger premium, volatile or complex risks.
  • To build distribution for our specialist retail products.
  • To protect and nurture our distinctive culture by recruiting the best people, and by focusing on organic growth.

Our success is due to this long-held strategy. It provides opportunity throughout the insurance cycle, allowing us to deliver in the short, medium and long term.

Our values

Challenging convention

These are the fundamental principles we believe in and they are qualities we wish to be known for. At the heart of this is a restless ethos to challenge convention in our industry, our operations and our service to customers.
