Increasing Asset Base to Attract Higher Yields

HELIOS UNDERWRITING PLC’s financial assets grew 21% from FY21 and could reach £235m by year-end, benefiting from the 111% increase in Lloyd’s of London (Lloyd’s) underwriting capacity (capacity) in FY21. Rising gilt yields drove short-term losses on fixed interest assets and an H122 EPS loss of 5.4p, but Edison Group forecasts much higher investment returns. #Ukraine claims provisions muted the results, but normalised recovery continued. The hard Lloyd’s premium rate environment bodes well for strong underwriting results in the FY23 and thereafter. Edison upgrades its FY23 EPS forecast by 18.5%, followed by 6.5% in FY24e and 7% in FY25e, resulting in a 6.7% increase in its valuation to 240p/share, with current price of 158p/share.
