Enstar Group Limited released its first quarter 2024 financial results.

A spokesperson said, “First Quarter 2024 Highlights:

  • Net income attributable to Enstar ordinary shareholders of $119 million, or $8.02 per diluted ordinary share, compared to $424 million, or $24.79 per diluted ordinary share, for the three months ended March 31, 2023.
  • Return on equity [ROE] of 2.4% and Adjusted ROE* of 2.6% for the quarter compared to ROE and Adjusted ROE* of 9.5% and 6.8%, respectively, in the first quarter of 2023. The prior-year period’s ROE and Adjusted ROE* included a $194 million net gain recognized on the novation of Enhanzed Re reinsurance closed block of life annuity policies. Year-over-year ROE performance was also impacted by a decline in the gain from fair value changes in trading securities, funds held and other investments. First quarter 2024 Adjusted ROE* also excludes $25 million of net realized losses on our fixed maturities and fair value changes in trading securities and funds held.
  • Run-off liability earnings [RLE] of $24 million for the quarter [compared to RLE of $10 million in the prior-year period] was driven by favorable development on our professional indemnity/directors and officers and asbestos lines of business, partially offset by adverse development on our general casualty and environmental lines of business.
  • Annualized total investment return [TIR] of 4.9% and Annualized Adjusted TIR* of 5.5% for the quarter compared to Annualized TIR and Annualized Adjusted TIR* of 9.5% and 6.3%, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2023. Recognized investment results in the first quarter of 2024 benefited from net investment income of $160 million and fair value change in other investments, including equities, of $104 million, partially offset by net realized and unrealized losses on our fixed maturities, including other comprehensive income [OCI], of $37 million.
  • Enstar’s Bermuda-based wholly owned subsidiary Cavello Bay Reinsurance Limited was assigned an Insurer Financial Strength Rating of ‘A’ with stable outlook by S&P Global Ratings.
  • Announced $400 million Loss Portfolio Transfer [LPT] agreement with SiriusPoint subsequent to quarter-end, to reinsure a portfolio of workers’ compensation business covering underwriting years 2018 to 2023.

Dominic Silvester, Enstar CEO, said, “Our momentum continues with a growth in book value of 1.7% in the first quarter, driven by solid performance in our investment portfolio and another quarter of positive Run-Off Liability Earnings.

“We were pleased to execute a $400 million Loss Portfolio Transfer with SiriusPoint earlier this week. The transaction expands our Workers’ Compensation portfolio, which is a line of business where we have a wealth of experience and have had significant success. We look forward to taking advantage of opportunities across our business throughout the year, as we stay focused on meeting the growing risk management needs of the [re]insurance sector while creating long-term value for our shareholders.”
