Directors' Report & Financial Statements for the year ended 20th February 2017.
The Review of the year 2017 details the Club's financials and claims experience. 2016 has been another strong year for the Club. Despite a small number of large claims notified to the Club towards the end of the year, a decent underwriting result and strong performance within the investment markets have enabled the Club to record a surplus for the ninth year in a row.
The Club’s performance over the first six months of the year has been extremely strong. After six months of the year, total notified claims on the prudently reserved 2016 policy year are encouraging with few large claims within the Club or Pool retentions. Claims on prior policy years have also developed favourably. Full details of the Club's half year financials are available in the attached '2016 Autumn Review'.

2015 has been another strong year for the Club. The importance of consistent disciplined underwriting was evident in a year of volatility in the investment markets. The combined ratio for the financial year was 92%, better than the Club’s target of 100%. Full details are available in the Club's 2016 Review of the Year.
At the half year, the UK Club holds free reserves and hybrid capital of $559 million. The surplus achieved in the first six months of the year contributed to this increase in free reserves, despite uncertainty in global investment markets.

The strength of the Club has enabled it to weather the particularly intense claims year of 2013 and to return a break-even result for the half year. The Club has maintained its capital position at the half year with $529m...
This year the Club has increased its free reserves and capital by $34 million. This takes the Club’s total capital to a new high of $528 million, comprising the underlying free reserves of $430 million and hybrid capital of $98 million.
A Strong resultThe Club has produced a surplus this year of $30 million which, together with the foreign exchange differences, takes the Club’s total free Reserves and hybrid capital to a new high of $528 million;...
At this half year, free reserves remain at a healthy level of $473 million. The reduction of $21 million reflects the higher claims experience of 2013, offset to some extent by continuing improvement in the most recent...
This year the Club has produced a surplus of $9.5 million, increasing the free reserves and hybrid capital to a new high of $494 million. Underpinning this result was a respectable underwriting performance in the face of mounting claims costs, and an investment return of 3.7%, equivalent to $39.6 million. Overall this was a good outcome, but it does not allow for complacency. The increased claims on the 2012 policy year are a warning that, despite weak global economic growth, claims inflation, particularly in the higher value claims, continues to be present. It is therefore essential to maintain a disciplined approach to underwriting in the coming years to achieve the target of a balanced underwriting result over the claims cycle.

The Club’s funds have continued to strengthen in the first half of 2012 with free reserves and capital increasing by US$8 million to US$494 million. With the Club’s owned tonnage at 20th August standing at over 116 million gross...
Good result in difficult times: This year we report another operating surplus and a further increase in the Club's free reserves and hybrid capital to $486 million. This level of capital, puts our Club's financial strength at the top level of its peer group in the P&I sector. This result is particularly pleasing as it comes in a year which has seen results elsewhere in the market adversely affected by an increase in claims and volatile investment returns. Overall the Club produced a surplus of $11 million. The main driver behind this positive outcome was the continuing improvement in the claims reserves on the more recent policy years and the early indications that 2011 will be a low claims year.
The UK Club’s financial position has improved strongly over the lastthree years. Total assets are currently in excess of $1.6 billion. Combined ratio The expected combined ratio for 2011/12 year is below 100 per...
