Morningstar | Continued Brexit Uncertainty Complicates Outlook for Admiral Earnings

After the election result on Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal for Brexit, we are maintaining our GBX 1,660 fair value estimate and no-moat rating for Admiral. May must secure a 49% vote of confidence, and U.K. motor and housing data points to a slide. The election result, in our opinion, still leaves the United Kingdom in a very precarious political situation with uncertainty about sovereignty or European Union membership. We have long been a bear on Admiral because while we think insurance in general is a no-moat industry, the personal lines non-life insurance market, with particular referen...

Vermilion Int'l Compass: Global Equity Strategy

Opportunity in EM countries Our cautious outlook and expectation for continued downward pressure on global equities remains intact. Broad global indexes (MSCI ACWI, ACWI ex-U.S., EAFE, and EM) are all trading within patterns of lower highs and lower lows, leading us to believe the most likely scenario is that this near-term bounce is likely nothing more than a countertrend rally before longer-term downtrends reassert themselves. • Opportunity in EM. Both a top-down and bottoms-up analysis point to opportunity in EM countries despite the intact downtrend for the MSCI EM index. Additionally, t...

Morningstar | At First Glance Admiral Is Highly Profitable, but This Is Leveraged Off Reinsurance Relationships

Admiral is a personal lines motor insurer with a few differences. The business was set up in 1993, spending its first seven years in Lloyds of London. It then went through a management buyout in 1999, teaming up with Barclay’s Private Equity. As part of this MBO, it entered into what have been successful coinsurance and reinsurance relationships. These have allowed the business to operate with what looks like a very capital-light business model, and we also think these have enabled the business to grow by using these reinsurers’ balance sheets. Admiral now takes about 22% of underwritten risk,...
