Lancashire Holdings is a Bermuda-based insurance company operating in Bermuda and London. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.

History[edit]

The Company was initially launched on the Alternative Investment Market in November 2005.[3] In February 2009 it secured a full listing on the London Stock Exchange.[4] It acquired Cathedral Capital in 2013, gaining access to the Lloyd's insurance market.[5]

Operations[edit]

The Company is focussed on property, energy, marine and aviation insurance. Unusually circa 85% of its business is primary insurance rather than re-insurance.[6]
