CFO Dr. Jan Wicke - First quarter 2024: Strong start into the new financial year

“We have made a strong start to 2024. This has increased our confidence that we will significantly exceed our full year net income target of more than EUR 1.7 billion”, says Talanx CFO Jan Wicke.

Talanx lifted its first-quarter insurance revenue by 9 percent year-on-year to EUR 11.7 (10.7) billion and its Group net income by 35 percent to EUR 572 (423) million. The return on equity stands at 21.2 (18.9) percent and reflects the positive claims experience.


The Talanx Group is therefore well on track to achieve its targets for 2024 – but is aware that loss events and the shifting from low-yield to higher-yield investments may impact net income over the course of the year. Nevertheless, the Group is increasingly confident that it will significantly exceed its full year net income target. At the end of last year, Talanx set itself the target of achieving a net income of more than EUR 1.7 billion and a return on equity of more than 15 percent by 2024.
