The Sunday Times is one of the first to acknowledge the achievements of the combined force of RKH and Hyperion following the merger.

Placed in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, which ranks 200 companies according to growth in international sales over the last two years, Hyperion Insurance Group ranks at 117. Advancing on RKH Specialty's singular achievement of 164th last year, it is recognition of the two groups' combined strength. The Sunday Times notes that Hyperion Insurance Group "will generate more than 30% of revenues in the US following its merger with broker RKH."

Amanda Murphy, UK head of corporate banking at HSBC, commented:

"The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 is a great reflection of the value of building connections overseas. The world is getting smaller, and international business relationships are easier to build, providing ambitious businesses with many more opportunities to grow. I'm delighted to see so many great British mid-sized firms making such a strong impression on the world stage."
