Syndicate in a box to target ESG high achievers

Lloyd’s is set to approve its first specialist ESG syndicate, designed to target firms which can demonstrate market-leading ESG performance.

Specialist insurer, Beazley has received in principle approval from Lloyd’s to establish Syndicate 4321, and it is expected to commence underwriting from 1 January 2022.

Beazley said once fully approved the syndicate will focus exclusively on offering additional capacity to businesses that perform well against ESG metrics and will be led by Will Roscoe, Head of the Market Facilities Division.

“Syndicate 4321 is an innovative and tangible way to support those businesses that invest in ESG by offering additional capacity,” said Roscoe. “Evidence demonstrates that businesses with high ESG ratings are likely to have a lower risk profile and we are looking forward to building long-term partnerships with clients that, like us, value doing the right thing.”

Syndicate 4321, which has been established under the Lloyd’s Syndicate In A Box (SIAB) framework, will operate a consortium arrangement led by Syndicates 623/2623. Eligible clients that can meet the standards of the ESG rating scoring criteria will be able to access additional capacity from Syndicate 4321.

Beazley said Syndicate 4321 will underwrite on a multi-line basis, to ensure diversification and balance. In the initial phase the syndicate will accept, D&O, healthcare, financial institutions, London market US cyber, property, marine hull, marine cargo and aviation business. All premiums received by Syndicate 4321 will be invested responsibly, in line with Beazley’s Responsible Investment Strategy.

Adrian Cox, CEO, Beazley, (below) said: “By creating the first specialist ESG syndicate at Lloyd’s, Beazley is taking an early step in delivering our commitment to embed ESG across our organisation, including our underwriting. Beazley has a track record of creating innovative underwriting vehicles and Syndicate 4321 delivers this to clients that have already achieved ESG standards. We continue to support all our clients, at whatever stage they are at in their ESG journey, with meaningful risk management and insurance capacity.”
