Despite taking a £1.46bn hit for damage caused by Superstorm Sandy, year proved easier than catastrophe-strewn 2011
Lloyd’s of London returned to profit in 2012, bouncing back from a £516m loss in 2011 after claims fell on account of fewer natural disasters. Pre-tax profits during 2012 reached £2.77bn, Lloyd’s said, with net incurred claims falling to £10.1bn from £12.9bn a year earlier.
The performance represents the combined results of about 80 competing insurance and reinsurance syndicates.Listed companies which operate syndicates at Lloyd’s include Catlin, Hiscox and Amlin.
Lloyd’s said the 2012 investment return was 1.3 billion pounds, up from 995 million pounds a year earlier.
Claims in 2012 included a $2.2bn (£1.46bn) hit from October’s Superstorm Sandy in the Caribbean. However, the year proved easier overall than 2011, the costliest on record for natural catastrophes that included earthquakes in Japan and New Zealand and tornadoes in the United States. Lloyd’s chief executive Richard Ward called it “a strong result”.

Rock hall of fame opens new exhibition on the music pioneer, who says he has six new songs he wants to release
Still rockin’ at 86, music legend Chuck Berry promised a comeback Saturday with six new songs, some written 16 years ago.
“And as soon as I can get someone to guide me – and I do know a little about the business – I want to push them out,” he told reporters at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, which honored him with an award and tribute concert. “I’m going to come back and push them out if you know what I mean, somehow.”
Berry, a rock pioneer with early hits that included Roll Over Beethoven, Sweet Little Sixteen and Johnny B Goode, wouldn’t tip his hand in detail about the new songs or when they might be released.
“They might be old, but they are the same type of music that I have been playing,” he said.
The lineup for Saturday night’s tribute concert honoring Berry at the State Theater included Ernie Isley and Darryl DMC McDaniels, Joe Bonamassa, Rick Derringer, Rosie Flores, John Fullbright, David Johansen, Ronnie Hawkins, Steve Jordan and Merle Haggard.
Berry, who still performs monthly at a club in suburban St Louis, offered some advice to the performers: “Keep rocking, keep rocking. That’s two words. Next word is: be kind to your fans.”
To mark the American Music Masters award presentation, the rock hall has mounted a special exhibition with items including Berry’s stage clothes, a guitar and his 1958 Chess Records recording contract.
The rock hall’s new library and archives has a separate exhibit with items including Berry’s 1964 British tour program and a handbill promoting his appearance with the Grateful Dead in 1968.
Past American Music Masters program honorees include Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and Woody Guthrie.
Berry, the museum’s first inductee in 1986, called the award and enshrinement in the rock hall a great honor. “You can’t get any higher in my profession than this building or this reason for this building,” he said.
