Esure numbers reflect insurance trends, says Hargreaves - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-rolls-royce-esure-and-sage/a1116352#i=3 Esure (ESUR) has seen policy numbers rising and the insurer shouldn’t be too concerned about price competition from comparison sites, says Hargreaves Lansdown. Results from the insurer showed in-force policies rose 9.2% in the first quarter, driven by motor insurance, and premiums rose 18% thanks to an improving price environment. Analyst Nicholas Hyett said the numbers reflected more general insurance trends. He said insurers would be hoping for a milder rest of the year after the Beast from the East blew ‘a great big hole in weather contingencies’ and any further flooding, storms, or a cold winter ‘all have the potential to seriously dent profits’. While motor insurance is healthy, it is being offset by competition in home insurance market. ‘If big players are standing firm on pricing, then competition at the lower end of the market must be fierce indeed - price comparison sites strike again,’ said Hyett. For Esure, underwriting is not a major contributor to group profits and as service revenues grow ‘a punch-up at the bottom end of the market is unlikely to bother Esure too much’. The shares rose 1.2% to 226.4p yesterday.

Nice to see the market taking a rational view and looking beyond the headline "payouts ahead" comment to the underlying performance of the business.

Payouts 6m ahead of expectations due to the weather. I don't understand why this hits the share price so hard as it is a one off event and premiums will rise as a result. In the long term it won't affect an insurers profitability. Despite the weather related problems profits expected to be in line. SP will likely fall as each share I hold has fallen on results in the first quarter which is my worst in over 10 years trading. wllm

Esure's low-risk footprint looks undervalued, Peel Hunt said on Friday as it bumped the stock up to 'buy' from 'add' and nudged the price target up to 300p from 295p. "A growing footprint and surprisingly benign claims inflation should support margins," said Peel, noting that the shares already appear to be factoring in a softening of the UK motor rate cycle. In addition, the stock looks undervalued at around 9x 2019 PER - compared to a sector average of 11x - and a 7% yield.

There's a lot of overhead, but back to at least 250p in the near term.

New holder here, seems to be forming a base around these levels. Financials look solid and it at a discount to peers. Flat divi was due to GOCO (do they still retain an interest).Any views on why the the down trend sent July 17?

And if you pay out a huge sum of money for injuries such as you have to support someone for the rest of their life, then that huge sum is reduced if the assumed investment return is based on low risk rather than ultra low risk. So X is involved in a crash and the insurers pay out to keep him for the rest of his life - they pay out £1.5m instead of £2m because it is expected that he gets a better investment return on the £1.5m which will pay throughout.

Personal injury compensation reforms announced - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/ministry-of-justice/rns/personal-injury-compensation-reforms-announced/201803200700021492I/ The Government is today introducing the Civil Liability Bill into the House of Lords to make important changes to the system of compensation for personal injury in England and Wales. The Bill will reform the law of England and Wales relating to whiplash claims and the way in which the personal injury discount rate is set under the Damages Act 1996. The principal changes in respect of the discount rate are that the rate will be set by reference to expected rates of return on a low risk diversified portfolio of investments rather than on very low risk investments as under the present law; in setting the rate, the Lord Chancellor will consult an independent expert panel chaired by the Government Actuary, with HM Treasury remaining a statutory consultee; and the discount rate will be reviewed promptly after the legislation comes into force and, thereafter, at least every three years. The introduction of the legislation follows the conclusion of the Government's consideration of the report of the Justice Select Committee on the draft legislation published by the Ministry of Justice in September 2017. The Government's response to the Committee's report will also be published later today.

Courtesy of @VegPatchShares on Twitter... HTTPS://twitter.com/VegPatchShares/status/971163023032422403 Peter “the UKs foremost motor insurance entrepreneur” Wood (I guarantee you will see that in the blurb tmrw) is growing policy count so he can sell. Underwriting Margins are wafer thin at high point in motor cycle and they are the most aggressive on price. Potentially dangerous!

Sir Peter Wood is certainly not giving the impression that its days as an independent company are likely to be short-lived... "The strong capital position allows us to pursue both our current strategy and to position the business for the future, as we look to stay at the forefront of our industry in an increasingly digital and data driven world. esure is a great business today and I am excited about the many opportunities we have to ensure we continue to be a great business in the future."
