File No. 333-212394
 

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Pursuant to Rule 461 under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”), Kinsale Capital Group, Inc. (the “Company”) hereby requests that the effective date of the above-referenced Registration Statement be accelerated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) so that the Registration Statement, as then amended, will become effective under the Securities Act at 4:00 p.m. ET on July 27, 2016 or as soon thereafter as practicable.

The Company hereby acknowledges that:
 
· the Company is responsible for the adequacy and accuracy of the disclosures in the filing;
 
· staff comments or changes to disclosure in response to staff comments do not foreclose the Commission from taking any action with respect to the filing; and
 
· the Company may not assert staff comments as a defense in any proceeding initiated by the Commission or any person under the federal securities laws of the United States.

We request that we be notified of such effectiveness by a telephone call to Dwight S. Yoo at (212) 735-2573 and that such effectiveness also be confirmed in writing.



 
Very truly yours, 
     
  KINSALE CAPITAL GROUP, INC.
