American Hellenic Hull, the American Club’s hull insurance subsidiary, remains on its dynamic upward trajectory after a profitable summer period. August was the company’s fifth consecutive month of profitable operations, thanks to the market continuing to firm and the company’s strong underwriting loss ratio of 64.7%.

The written premium was 13% higher than at the same stage last year. The company’s total assets have increased by 16% during the year, while current assets are 332% of current liabilities. Long overdue items are at their lowest-ever level at about 1%, while the company’s operating expenses are currently 14.3% below budgeted amounts.
In August, the capital of American Hellenic Hull stood at 116% of the Solvency Capital Requirement (SCR) and 166.6% of the Minimum Capital Requirement (MCR).
