Master Elite Insurance Logo_(green)Elite Insurance have today announced their annual trading results for the period to 31 March 2016.

In what has been, in many ways, a challenging year for the insurance industry, Elite has shown growth in all key areas: Gross written premium, Technical profit, Profit after tax and Net assets.

Profit before taxation has increased from £4.62m to an impressive £11.47m.

Elite key financials 31 March 2016:

(£m) 2016 2015
Gross Written Premium 166.87 160.4
Underwriting Profit 17.41 14.41
Technical Profit 8.67 6.72
Profit Before Tax 11.43 4.62
Cash and Equivalents 80.57 73.75
Net Assets 47.87 37.63

 

CEO, Jason Smart, had this to say, “It has been a challenging year for all concerned. Our team have had to contend with major regulatory change with the introduction of Solvency II in January 2016, increased regulatory oversight and the inevitable pressures on our team as the result of Elite’s growth.

Nonetheless, we have achieved a substantial increase in profitability as well as a comfortable increase in our surplus over solvency requirements under both Solvency I and Solvency II. I applaud our team for the fantastic efforts”.

Other key achievements for Elite during the year under review include the renewal of a major property scheme, the renewal of a number of other valuable schemes and receiving regulatory approval from the SRA for in-house legal firm, Elite Law, which will give the company greater control over the legal aspects of their claims process and will substantially reduce costs.

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
