In a continued competitive P&I environment Skuld increased its global business through the 4.6% growth in mutual P&I business. Growth was also recorded in the commercial P&I business lines, which include charterers, offshore and fixed premium/yachts.
Ståle Hansen, Skuld president and CEO, said: “We are very pleased to announce a successful renewal in our 123rd operating year, and to record another increase on our previous year’s gross tonnage. With 95.3 million GT at renewal and with more committed, we note that we will soon pass the GT 100 million mark. This success would not have been possible without the loyalty of our high-quality membership and the dedicated and co-ordinated teamwork across our network of offices and departments.
“Skuld’s strategic focus on diversification and sustainable growth through careful selection of quality tonnage contributes to a very strong and robust foundation for further growth in 2020 and beyond, and enables us to continue providing our members, clients and brokers with the service and competence they can rely on.”
