Fidelis is a leading specialty, bespoke and (re)insurance business built on a 35 year track record of outperformance that continues to beat the market in terms of its underwriting and returns.

Our winning model in a changing market

Product innovation driven by superior underwriting, flexible capital allocation and efficient platform driving ROE outperformance.

1. CAGR = Compound annual growth rate;
2. Excluding the premium paid on preferred share repurchases and warrant expense;
3. Calculated as the total loss, acquisition and admin expenses incurred, excluding stock compensation, over total net earned premiums earned;
4. ROE is calculated as the change in diluted book value per share over the opening diluted book value per share adjusted for common dividends and excludes the impact on equity and dilution of all extraordinary capital transactions, including capital raises, the premium paid associated with preference share repurchases and payments to minority shareholders. The ROE calculation excludes the premium on preferred share repurchases of $25.3 million and the additional dilution of stock awards due to the capital transactions.
5. Steady state is when the ratio of net earned premium to net written premium is equal to approximately 90% (on a 12-month rolling year basis), which we expect to achieve in 2023. 
6. Number of employees as at 31/12/20
