Talanx increases insurance revenue to EUR 20.9 (19.2) billion in the first half-year and achieves a record Group net income of EUR 827 (686) million. The return on equity is 18.4 (15.4) percent. The good half-year result was influenced by inflation-related price increases, a low major losses volume and effects deriving from the new accounting standards.
The Group is optimistic that it will exceed its outlook for the full year: For the end of the year, the Group had set itself the target of achieving insurance revenue of EUR 42 billion and a Group net income of EUR 1.4 billion. Additionally, the Group aims for a return on equity of clearly above 10 percent by the end of the year.
