James River Group Holdings, Ltd. ("James River Holdings", or "the Company") is a Bermuda-based insurance holding company which owns and operates a group of specialty insurance and reinsurance companies. For the year ended December 31, 2017, approximately 81% of our group-wide gross written premiums originated from the U.S. excess and surplus ("E&S") lines market.
Substantially all of our business is casualty insurance and reinsurance, and for the year ended December 31, 2017, we derived 96% of our group-wide gross written premiums from casualty insurance and reinsurance.
Our objective is to generate compelling returns on tangible equity, while limiting underwriting and investment volatility. We seek to accomplish this by earning profits from insurance and reinsurance underwriting on a consistent basis while managing our capital opportunistically to grow tangible equity per share for our shareholders.
