Company Release - 6/18/2018 4:15 PM ET

PEMBROKE, Bermuda--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AXIS Capital Holdings Limited (“AXIS Capital” or the “Company”) (NYSE:AXS) today announced the publication of the Company's 2017 Loss Development Triangles. A copy of this document is available in the Investor Relations section of the Company's website,

The data is presented as of December 31, 2017, on an accident-year basis and includes paid, incurred and ultimate losses on a net and gross basis. Development triangles for paid, incurred and ultimate losses are provided on a net of reinsurance basis, thus allowing for a more direct reconciliation between the triangles and the Company's published net financial information. The information for the development triangles is provided for 11 reserving classes of business that fall under the Company's two reportable segments, Insurance and Reinsurance.

Consistent with the Company’s Form 10-K filing, for the year ended December 31, 2017, the Accident & Health business has been grouped within Insurance Property. This will be reclassified as Insurance and Reinsurance for 2018 and onwards. To avoid distortions to the triangles, Novae Group plc ("Novae"), which includes Syndicate 2007, and Compagnie Belge d'Assurances Aviation NV/SA ("Aviabel") are not reflected in the triangles unless explicitly stated.
