Premiums March 2021

Premiums from direct insurance and accepted reinsurance reached 5.9 billion euros, with a decrease of 3.3 percent, primarily due to strong depreciation of the main currencies. At constant exchange rates, premiums would have grown 3.2 percent.

Non-Life premiums went down 2.6 percent, marked primarily by lower issuing in the Auto line, which fell 10.5 percent, primarily as a result of lower issuing in the United States, Italy, Turkey and Mexico. At constant exchange rates, Non-Life premiums would have grown 3.5%. It is important to point out the growth in the General P&C and Health businesses, which went up 6.6 and 4.0 percent in the quarter, respectively, thanks to positive development in Mexico, Spain, Colombia, and Brazil in General P&C, and in Spain and Mexico in Health & Accident.

By Non-Life business type, General P&C is the most important line, with over 1.6 billion euros in premiums. Auto holds second place, with almost 1.4 billion euros. Health and Accident is in third place with 907 million euros.

Life insurance premiums fell 6.2 percent, whereas at constant exchange rates they would have grown 1.7%. Of these, Life-Protection fell 15.1 percent, primarily from the currency effect in Brazil. Life-Savings premiums fell 8.3 percent, primarily from the fall in issuing in Mexico, Panama and Spain, in a complicated economic environment for the sale of these products.

Combined ratio March 2021

The Group’s combined ratio stood at 94.3 percent at the close of March, improving 5.7 percentage points compared to the pre-pandemic first quarter of 2020. The main drivers of the improvements are technical measures implemented in previous years, mainly in Brazil and USA, lower Auto frequency from the pandemic, as well as the absence of large catastrophic events. The combined ratio of the insurance units stood at 93.8 percent, improving 3.4 percentage points.

Net result March 2021

The accumulated attributable result to March 2021 reached 173 million euros, rising 36.7 percent, mainly from the improved MAPFRE RE and Asistencia business units’ results, as well as the already-mentioned absence of large catastrophic events. Lower frequency in Non-Life lines, especially Auto, has offset COVID-19 related claims and the fall in the financial result.

Solvency II

The Solvency II ratio for MAPFRE Group stood at 192.9 percent with provisional figures at December 2020, compared to 186.8 percent at the close of December 2019, including transitional measures. These figures already reflect the impact of the application of Spanish Life business internal model for longevity risk, approved by local regulator April 2021, which imply a 6 p.p. uplift in the Solvency II ratio. Eligible Own Funds reached 8.9 billion euros in the same period.

The ratio maintained great solidity and stability, backed by high levels of diversification and strict investment and ALM policies.

  • High quality capital base: 86% of eligible own funds are Tier 1.
  • “Fully loaded” Solvency II ratio: 178.4% (excluding impact of transitional measures on technical provisions and equity).
