Bjørnar Andresen, Gard’s Chief Underwriting Officer said: "The key theme of this renewal was consolidation. We saw many owners shifting more, or all, of their fleet to Gard to benefit from the financial strength and predictability that we offer.  We have achieved a record amount of new business at renewal at prices that achieve a good balance between owners’ needs and underwriting profitability. We are delighted that the consistency we deliver in terms of our product, pricing and service is appreciated both by existing and new Members.”
