James River Group Holdings, Ltd. ("James River Holdings", or "the Company") is a Bermuda-based insurance holding company. We own and operate a group of
specialty insurance and reinsurance companies founded by members of our management team. For the year ended December 31, 2015, approximately 73% of our group-wide gross
written premiums originated from the U.S. excess and surplus ("E&S") lines market. Substantially all of our business is casualty insurance and reinsurance,
and for the year ended December 31, 2015, we derived 98% of our group-wide gross written premiums from casualty insurance and reinsurance. Our objective
is to generate compelling returns on tangible equity, while limiting underwriting and investment volatility. We seek to accomplish this by earning profits
from insurance and reinsurance underwriting on a consistent basis while managing our capital opportunistically to grow tangible equity per share for our
shareholders. Our group includes three specialty property-casualty insurance and reinsurance segments: Excess and Surplus Lines, Specialty Admitted Insurance
and Casualty Reinsurance. In all of our segments, we tend to focus on accounts associated with small or medium-sized businesses.
