|Number of syndicates*||18||14|

- The ECA rating is based on Lloyd's risk based Economic Capital Assessment, the empirical measure that allows Lloyd's to determine how much capital each syndicate must provide as security for its underwriting.
- Non-marine property reinsurance business is mainly natural catastrophe exposed business.
- We focus on quality. Newton Follis reviews each syndicate and provides recommendations in its annual House View document. Continuous research and analysis allows us to judge which syndicates by our criteria are of the highest quality and represent the highest standards of underwriting.
- We are highly selective and because of our focus on quality tend to recommend portfolios that contain fewer syndicates.
