BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Allianz profit up 36.5% in third quarter

Allianz profit up 36.5% in third quarter

Allianz S.E. on Friday said third-quarter net income increased 36.5% €1.9 billion ($2.07 billion), due in part to better performance across its business segments and lower catastrophe costs.

Gross premiums written held steady at €11.5 billion ($12.53 billion) in the property/casualty segment, the Munich-based insurer said in a statement. 

The property/casualty insurance segment posted “robust internal revenue growth” of 3.1% when adjusted for currency and consolidation effects, mostly due to positive developments in Turkey, Allianz Worldwide Partners and Australia. Of that, price and volume effects contributed 1.6% and 1.5%, respectively, Allianz said in the statement.

The underwriting result benefited from a benign natural catastrophe environment and lower large losses, Allianz said.

The combined ratio for the quarter improved to 93.5% from 94.1%.

“The rate of internal growth at over 3% is a clear signal that the Property and Casualty business is robust,” Dieter Wemmer, chief financial officer of Allianz, said in the statement.
