Results September 2022
In the third quarter of 2022, premiums from direct insurance and accepted reinsurance reached over 18.6 billion euros, with a 12.1 percent increase, and the attributable result stood at 488.4 million euros, which represents a 6.9 percent decrease with respect to the same period the previous year
Revenue September 2022
MAPFRE’s consolidated revenue in the first nine months of 2022 reached 22.2 billion euros, with a 12.2 percent improvement.
Financial income from investments surpassed 1.7 billion euros, 13.8 percent less than the same period the previous year. This decrease comes primarily from Spain as a result of the BANKIA VIDA exit, as well as from lower gains in Unit-Linked products.
Finally, other revenue went up 59.5 percent, primarily due to the increase in positive currency differences.
Premiums September 2022
Premiums from direct insurance and accepted reinsurance reached over 18.6 billion euros, with a 12.1 percent increase. This growth is impacted, on the one hand, by the issuing of the extraordinary multiyear policy in Mexico in June 2021 and the sale of BANKIA VIDA the same year, and on the other hand, by the positive behavior of almost all currencies against the euro in 2022. Eliminating these effects, underlying growth would be 10.6 percent.
Non-Life premiums grew 12.8 percent, primarily from improved issuing in Motor, General P&C, and Health and Accident lines. Improvements in General P&C are thanks to the favorable development in Brazil and Spain, while growth in Motor is primarily due to improved business in Brazil.
Life insurance premiums grew 9.4 percent thanks to improved Life Protection business, primarily as a result of improved business in Brazil, Peru, and Mexico.
Premium growth in the reinsurance business is also noteworthy (+18%), thanks to the favorable pricing environment.
Combined ratio September 2022
The Group’s combined ratio stood at 98.4 percent at the close of the third quarter, with the loss ratio up over 3 points, mainly driven by the pressure in Motor, as well as higher frequency of NatCat events. The 27 percent expense ratio, down 1.4 points, is noteworthy, supported by very strict cost control in all areas.
Net result September 2022
The accumulated attributable result in the third quarter of the year reached 488.4 million euros, falling 6.9 percent, with strong profit contribution from core operations, and better technical results in General P&C and Life Protection are helping mitigate ongoing pressure in Motor, with a solid contribution from financial income in many markets.
Balance sheet to September 2022
Total consolidated assets reached over 62.6 billion euros at September 2022 and are down 2.0 percent compared to the close of the previous year, in large part due to the lower valuation of the investment portfolios, partially offset by business growth and currency appreciation.
The Group’s shareholders’ equity is down 10.3 percent on the year, mainly due to the reduction of unrealized capital gains from rising interest rates, which was partially offset by currency appreciation, especially the US dollar and the Brazilian real.
