Results June 2020
MAPFRE’s consolidated revenue in the first half of 2020 amounted to 13.3 billion euros, equivalent to an 11.8 percent decrease, and the attributable result stood at 271 million euros, representing a 27.7 percent fall with respect to the previous year.
Revenue June 2020
The Group’s consolidated revenue in the second quarter of 2020 reached 13.3 billion euros, with a decrease of 11.8 percent, mainly due to the fall in written premiums and lower financial income. At constant exchange rates, revenue would have only fallen 7.6 percent.
Premiums June 2020
Premiums from direct insurance and accepted reinsurance reached 11.0 billion euros, with a decrease of 12.3 percent, due in part to the effects on new business of the confinement of the population from COVID-19, and to the strong depreciation of the main currencies in LATAM countries and in Turkey. At constant exchange rates, and eliminating the effect of premiums from the PEMEX policy that was underwritten in 2019, premiums would have only fallen 4.3 percent.
Non-Life premiums went down 9.7 percent, marked primarily by lower issuing in the Auto and General P&C lines, from the effect of PEMEX policy. Written Auto premiums fell 18.6 percent, primarily as a result of lower issuing in Brazil, the United States, Italy, Spain and Turkey.
By Non-Life business type, General P&C is the most important line, with 3.1 billion euros in premiums. Auto holds second place, with over 2.8 billion euros, and Health and Accident is in third place with 1.1 billion euros in premiums.
Life premiums fell 21.4 percent. Of these, Life-Protection fell 11.1 percent, primarily from the decline in this business and the currency effect in Brazil in the first half. Life-Savings premiums fell 33.5 percent, primarily from the fall in issuing in Spain and Malta, in a complicated economic environment for the sale of these products.
Combined ratio June 2020
The Group’s combined ratio stood at 96.7 percent at the close of June, affected by the direct impacts from COVID-19 and NatCat claims, which have been partially offset by a strong fall in frequency across main markets, mainly in Motor. The combined ratio of the insurance units stood at 93.8 percent.
Net result June 2020
The accumulated attributable result to June 2020 reached 271 million euros, falling 27.7 percent, affected by the earthquakes in Puerto Rico and adverse weather in Spain in the first half of the year, as well as by the impact of COVID-19 related claims. At constant exchange rates, this result would have stood at 293 million euros.
Balance sheet to June 2020
Total assets reached 70.2 billion euros at June 30, 2020 and fell 3.2 percent compared to the close of the previous year. These changes include the decrease in financial investments and in technical provisions, due to the deterioration of the financial markets, as well as the relevant depreciation of the main currencies in LATAM and the Turkish lira in the first half.
The Group’s shareholders’ equity has been primarily impacted by two effects from the COVID-19 crisis. On the one hand, the fall in financial markets, and on the other, the aforementioned strong currency depreciation.
Assets under management
The Solvency II ratio for MAPFRE Group stood at 177 percent at March 2020, compared to 187 percent at the close of December 2019. Despite the sharp fall in stock markets and financial investments, 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: 164% (excluding impact of transitional measures on technical provisions and equity).
