Circular 14/23: 2024 Renewal and Open Policy Years
At their November meetings in Tokyo and Rotterdam, the Boards reviewed the financial position of the Club, including the performance of the open and closed policy years, and have set a general increase of 7.5 per cent on all mutual premium rates for the 2024 renewal. The decisions have been agreed by the Club and its subsidiaries, including UKN.V. which underwrites all EEA risks.
For the 2024 policy year, the Directors have mandated an increase of 10% to apply to all deductibles up to $50,000 with a minimum increase of $1,000 to apply.
The Club may propose higher deductibles as part of the renewal terms for Members with adverse records.
Any change in the cost of the International Group reinsurance programme will be passed on to the mutual Members.
In assessing release calls, the Directors take account of premium risk, catastrophe risk, reserve risk, counterparty default risk, market risk and operational risk.
For the 2024 policy year, the release call is set at 15 per cent of mutual premium, plus any outstanding instalments of mutual premium. The open policy year release calls have been updated and are detailed below.
