About $8.8 billion of the December-half premium was placed with APRA-authorised general insurers, $1.1 billion with Lloyd’s underwriters and $600 million with unauthorised foreign insurers (UFIs). Singapore and the UK accounted for 79% of premium placed with UFIs. Of the UFI premium, $364 million was in the fire and industrial special risk class. The high-value-insured exemption was used to place 76% of business with UFIs, the custom exemption 19%, the atypical exemption 4% and the foreign exemption 1%.
