Mixed H1 figures, again additional reserve needs in Germany

Pre-tax profit decreased by 11% to CHF341m for H1 18 compared to the same period last year. H1 18 was burdened by the addition of CHF46.8m to reserves for a run-off portfolio in the German non-life business. This reduced profit by a net CHF32.4m in H1 18. Net premiums earned were down by 3% to CHF3.77bn. Investment income rose by 2% to CHF732m for H1 18 compared to H1 17. “Realised gains and losses on investments at the risk of life insurance policyholders and third parties” switched from a profit of CHF279m for H1 17 to a loss CHF177m for H1 18. However, it is not burdening shareholders. Overall, income decreased by 12% to CHF4.6bn for H1 18 compared to H1 17. Insurance claims were up by 6% to CHF3.26bn for H1 18. Change in technical reserve came strongly down from CHF647m for H1 17 to CHF168m for H1 18. Total expenses decreased by 13% to CHF4.2bn in the same period. The net combined ratio of the non-life business rose from 89.7% for H1 17 to 94.1% for H1 18, around 3% came from the additional reserves for the German run-off portfolio. The tax ratio decreased slightly from 22% for H1 17 to 21% for H1 18. Net attributable profit declined by 10% to CHF270m in H1 18. If it had not added to its reserves, Baloise would have generated a profit of CHF302m. Total equity was down by 4% to CHF6.15bn at the end of June 2018 compared to the end of 2017. The SST ratio as at January 2018 was 262%. Baloise reports only on a half-yearly basis.
