Revenue December 2020

The Group’s consolidated revenue in 2020 reached 25.4 billion euros, with a decrease of 10.7 percent, mainly due to the fall in written premiums and lower financial income. The depreciation of the main currencies on our business has also played an important role in the decline, as at constant exchange rates revenue would have only fallen 4.6 percent.

Premiums December 2020

Premiums from direct insurance and accepted reinsurance reached 20.5 billion euros, with a decrease of 11.1 percent, due in part to the effects on new business of the confinement of the population from COVID-19, the strong depreciation of the main currencies, as well as the challenging context for the sale of Life-Savings products. At constant exchange rates, premiums would have only fallen 4.1 percent.

Non-Life premiums went down 8.3 percent, marked primarily by lower issuing in the Auto and General P&C lines, from the effect in the latter segment of the PEMEX policy that was underwritten in 2019. Written Auto premiums fell 15.6 percent, primarily as a result of lower issuing in Brazil, the United States, Italy, Spain and Turkey.

By Non-Life business type, Auto is the most important line, with over 5.6 billion euros in premiums. General P&C holds second place, with almost 5.6 billion euros, and Health and Accident is in third place with 1.5 billion euros in premiums.

Life premiums fell 20.3 percent. Of these, Life-Protection fell 12.5 percent, primarily from the currency effect in Brazil. Life-Savings premiums fell 30.5 percent, primarily from the fall in issuing in Spain in a complicated economic environment for the sale of these products.

Combined ratio December 2020

The Group’s combined ratio stood at 94.8 percent at the close of December, improving 2.9 percentage points and affected by the direct impacts from COVID-19, NatCat events and large man-made losses, which have been partially offset by a strong fall in frequency, especially in Auto and Health lines, as well as by the profitability measures implemented across main markets. The combined ratio of the insurance units stood at 92.9 percent, improving 3.6 percentage points

Net result December 2020

The accumulated attributable result to December 2020 reached 527 million euros, falling 13.6 percent, affected by the earthquakes in Puerto Rico, write-offs of goodwill and portfolio acquisition expenses, as well as by the impact of COVID-19 related claims. Lower frequency in Non-Life lines, especially Auto and Health, has offset COVID-19 related claims and the fall in the financial result. The attributable result of insurance entities amounted to 791 million euros, which represents a 2 percent decrease compared to the previous year.
