The Syndicate Business Forecast, submitted in June 2008, proposed a de-emption from £215m to £175m for the 2009 underwriting year of account.

Since June the insurance industry has experienced significant hurricane losses and there has been further turmoil in the worldwide financial markets. These factors have resulted in Atrium re-estimating the level of syndicate capacity required for the 2009 underwriting year of account to £200m. The Franchise Performance Directorate and supporting capital have approved the revised level of syndicate capacity.

The underlying syndicate business plan remains materially unaltered, however, should the direct and reinsurance markets react as anticipated, Atrium will seek to amend their current 2009 business plan to respond to business opportunities. In the event that a revised business plan is submitted, it is likely that a revised ICA submission will also be required which may result in additional capital requirements at the mid year coming into line exercise.
