Ploot, there were two transactions I noticed, one from their Underwriting officer and a second from their head of underwriting - the later is retiring to be fair and holds a lot of shares.

Essential Investor - thanks for your responses to my post yesterday. One point of information and a couple of opinions for your consideration: The combined total of shares bought on Monday by various directors was 31,500 which clearly is greater than the 27,124 sold by Paul Lawrence in September, not fewer as you stated in your post 49. However, I don't wish to appear pedantic and I accept that it is unwelcome when a senior manager in Paul Lawrence's position sells such a significant volume of shares. I too used to work in insurance (for the avoidance of doubt, I did not work for Hiscox) and Hiscox are the only general insurer in my investment portfolio and have been so for a number of years. I cannot agree with your suggestion that Mr Lawrence, as Chief Underwriting Officer of the London Market and Lloyds Syndicate Division (Richard Watson is CUO at the Group level), has greater insight or knowledge of the likely future fortunes of this business than the CFO, Robert Childs or Bronek Masojada. Mr Masojada is, IMHO, one of the brightest people working in the insurance market and has, as far as I am aware, always been very straightforward in providing information to shareholders even when it is news he knows they may not want to hear, as you will know these qualities are all too rare.

Yes, but yet that combined total is Less than the shares sold over the summer by their Underwriting Office - and having worked in insurance know which I would pay attention to.

Agreed demotion is quite likely at current prices.

Demotion is a distinct possibility.

Still recovering so I think that you were all correct that it was an overreaction to the statement that was already known.

Well done 760il. I bought in at 1210, once I saw the combined ratio data. Didn't look so bad.

Also on the FTSE 100, Hiscox Ltd (LON:HSX) tumbled 13% to 1,202p after JPMorgan Cazenove downgraded the insurer to 'neutral' and slashed its target price to 1290p from 1750p.Shares already slid on Monday's trading update, which revealed that the insurer took a US$165mln hit to cover the impact of Typhoon Faxai, Typhoon Hagibis, and Hurricane Dorian in the last quarter.The insurer's price target was also cut hard by investment bank Jefferies to 1,229p from 1,605p.

Massive over-reaction - no support price established though hence its dropping like a stone. Once base price is found this will recover pretty sharp or someone will make a bid at this bargain price, sitting watching and waiting and poised to buy more!

Be surprised if this didn't at least recover up to the £12.50 area later on today.

Seems a huge over reaction as far as I can read. Maybe something else is happening that we haven't heard about. Maybe time for a top up later in the week.

Trading statement went down badly, surprising considering recemt losses must have been expected. Maybe the wild fires are the bad news.
