(24.85%) 

 

The Company's Ordinary Share performance in the month of December reflects the impact of a $0.0082 per share or (1.01%) charge to recognize the fair value of a risk margin applied against net assets that are required to be held as buffer loss collateral following the significant loss events in 2017.  Such buffer loss collateral balances are not expected to be available for deployment immediately following the expiry of the underlying reinsurance contracts in their entirety.  Fair value accounting principles require a risk margin charge to reflect the risk associated with the uncertainty of the buffer loss collateral being released in the future.  Management expects the risk margin charge to decline, with a corresponding accretion of net asset value over time as the buffer loss collateral balances decline. 

 

In addition, the Company's Ordinary Share performance in December was impacted by a modest increase in estimated losses from Hurricane Irma, other attritional losses incurred and a reduction in estimated earned premium.

 

In accordance with the Circular of the Company dated 4 November 2016, the Company's administrator has calculated the estimated Net Asset Value per Redemption Share as at the close of business on 31 December 2017.
