underwriting  qualities for the Group.  Simon's new responsibilities are a
reflection of the Board's and my faith in his abilities.   Alex Maloney and

Lancashire for the foreseeable future."

Bob Spass, Chairman of Lancashire Holdings, added: "These promotions are a
natural step in the evolution of the Lancashire Group.  They reflect the fact
that, while  headquartered in Bermuda, the addition of the underwriting platform
in London means the Group now writes its  diversified mix of insurance products

reflected by these appointments, underpins the Board's confidence in the ability
of the Lancashire Group to consolidate  its position as an established player in
its specialty markets."
