Talanx Group generates record profit of EUR 1,581 million in financial year 2023

  • Group net income of EUR 1,581 million expected, clearly surpassing the original forecast – 2024 Group net income target of more than EUR 1.7 billion confirmed
  • Insurance revenue increases to EUR 43.2 billion
  • Return on equity of 16.6 percent clearly exceeds strategic target

The Talanx Group was extremely successful in financial year 2023. Based on its consolidated unaudited figures, it is expecting Group net income of EUR 1,581 million. This clearly surpasses the original annual target of approximately EUR 1.4 billion. Insurance revenue rose to EUR 43.2 (39.7) billion. The return on equity of 16.6 percent clearly exceeds the strategic target of 10 percent. The positive trend in Group net income was driven by earnings growth in all divisions and large loss payments that remained within budget, plus inflation-related price increases.

The Group will report on the dividend proposal by the Board of Management and Supervisory Board for financial year 2023 at its annual results press conference on 21 March 2024, where the final key financial figures and the audited consolidated financial statements for 2023 will also be presented. In keeping with its long-term dividend policy, the Board of Management is aiming to exceed the prior-year dividend payment of EUR 2 per share.

Talanx is confirming the outlook for Group net income of more than EUR 1.7 billion for the current year, 2024. This means that it will clearly exceed its 2025 Group net income target of around EUR 1.6 billion one year earlier than planned.

The Group’s assets, liabilities, financial position and financial performance for 2023 were reported for the first time under the new IFRS 17 and IFRS 9 accounting standards. A comprehensive discussion of the key changes resulting from the new/modified accounting principles is provided in the Interim Report as at 30 June 2023.
