Alpha comment

These are the final year’s results that affect Alpha members. Alpha withdrew its support for the Apollo syndicates after the 2019 year of account due to its concerns over the Apollo management and its approach to reserving.

On the specific syndicate results:

1969 – This is the welcome first profit reported for this syndicate since 2015 and yet again suffers from a shortfall on the prior years’ reserves.

1971 – Although the result is a little below the previously reported midpoint, this is a reasonable result for the first year of this long tail syndicate, given the considerable shortfall in its projected income.

6133 – Having deteriorated its forecasts during 2020, it is pleasing to see a slight improvement in the final result, despite this catastrophe SPA having been hit hard by large losses in both of its first two years of operation.
