And all of a sudden the c50p walk down of the share price after open until close on the day of the trading statement makes sense - they wall-crossed a bunch of people immediately afterwards and word started leaking out and trading took place would be my guess.

Will the FCA investigate? Will they hell...

Beazley plc issued a trading statement for the 9 months ended 30th September this morning. Gross premiums written increased by 22% to $3,980m, premium rates on renewal business increased by 17%. The initial Hurricane Ian loss estimate is for a hit of $120m net of reinsurance, the Group has experienced mark-to-market investment loss of $289m or 3.6% year to date due to unfavourable market conditions. But the Group is profitable, combined ratio guidance remains for the high 80s in FY22. Valuation is also relatively attractive, the balance sheet is strong, the share price is trending and has positive momentum. BUY....

Questor Tip from Russ mould!

Buy this stock that's raised its prices by 18pc
Questor share tip: Beazley still appears to be undervalued despite a 15pc gain since our first look in May

If analysts are in the right sort of area there, the shares could look cheap indeed and Beazley could still prove to be a bargain. Keep buying.

Questor says: buy

Quite surprised they have not come out with any clarifying statements. As Medieval mentioned if not material then may not be required to, but I cant see any rational reason why they would not release a statement anyway. A simple one roughly stating their exposure, as countless other companies have done, would alleviate many concerns.

I like beazley as a company and have made some decent money trading it over the last few years and although the price may seem cheap at first glance it feels like buying now is almost like buying blind..

Are you saying that Bez insures its policy holders against acts by foreign governments?

I'd be very surprised if so.

Would be even more surprised if they provide insurance for acts of war.

Cyber attacks might be exception to above. Obviously cyber specific cover can hardly exclude acts of foreign governments whether in pursuit of war or otherwise. It's almost impossible to attribute such events to an identified perpetrator.

The general insurers like AV tend to be be hit hard on risk off days,
treated more like financials.

Outlook looks good here but as mentioned you take a lot on trust.

As a PI how could I make an assessment on the value or quality of the BEZ cyber ecosystem?. Perhaps if you work in the industry or have some great sector insight - which I don't on either count !.

I see general press comment on Sol II relaxation for UK insurers to allow wider investment and lower capital requirements. Longer term should help sector, and hopefully BEZ, although many will be operation through EU subsidiaries and will not benefit fully.

Tamzin :

Thanks so much for the link - Alexandra's thoughts/instincts on BEZ tie in exactly with my (less well thought out) views (have been invested since 2014, previously invested in insurer Amlin).

Maybe the last few days price movement are bearing out her sentiment re. share price ?

Time will tell. All the best Geoff

I just checked BEZ reissue price and it is 329p on May 18, 2020. So Friday price of 326, it is lower than the issue price.

For HSX: the Capital Raise of 57,693,425 new Ordinary Shares raised gross proceeds of approximately £375 million. The Placing Price of 650 pence represents a discount of 6.1 per cent to the closing share price of 692.4 pence on 5 May 2020. The Placing Shares and the Subscription Shares (together, the "New Shares") being issued represent, in aggregate, approximately 19.99 per cent of the existing issued ordinary share capital of Hiscox prior to the Capital Raise.

If you look at the 5yr performance of two stocks, you can see that while BEZ is almost at the same level, HSX is down 8.50%...
