Hiscox has in current quarters been very focused on deploying more of its own capital and less third-party capital, as it sought to grow into the firmer reinsurance rate environment.
This continues, as the business has deployed more capital of its own again, stating that it has made a bigger disaster bet utilizing its own capital around the renewals.
