At its Members’ Representative Committee and Board Meetings on 16 October in Hamburg, Britannia P&I Club announced that for 2019/20 there would be no General Increase to its advance call for P&I Members. In addition, Britannia continues to set its release calls for open policy years at nil.

A further USD10m capital distribution was also announced to P&I mutual Members based on premium for ships on risk at midnight BST 16 October 2018.

Likewise, there will be no General Increase for 2019/20 to its advance call on FD&D. To further support its FD&D Members, from 2019/20 Britannia will cap at USD150,000 individual Members’ one-third contribution towards the cost of any FD&D claim.

“Britannia’s strong capital position means that, since October 2016, we have been able to return USD75m in deferred call waivers and capital distributions to Members, while seeking no General Increase in P&I for the past three years or FD&D for the past five years,” said Nigel Palmer OBE, Chairman of Britannia.

“In the same period, we have enhanced our service offering in Asia whilst establishing a presence in Greece and Denmark. This underlines the Club’s commitment to its Members by continuing to provide the highest quality service.”

“Standard & Poor’s have recently reconfirmed Britannia’s strong financial performance and positive capital position with an A (stable) rating. Prudent yet proactive financial management by the Managers has enabled both Members and the Association to benefit from positive returns” said Jo Rodgers, CFO of Tindall Riley (Britannia) Limited.
