CZECH Rep. 1H2013: life pushed GWP down, floods inflate claims

At a slow pace, the Czech insurance market in 1H2013 also recorded the descending trend established in late 2011. The life insurance sector, accounting for more than 40% of the overall premium production, was responsible for the negative change recorded by the market turnover in the first half of the year. Thus GWP for the life insurance lines fell by 5.8%, to CZK 35 billion (EUR 1.35 billion). According to the representatives of CAP - the Czech insurers' association, the main reason of this trend is a significant drop in premiums for single premium life insurance, by 17%, mainly due to lower revenues of financial markets in the second quarter of this year.

CZECH REPUBLIC: Health insurer VZP to save CZK 67m by buying IZIP site

CZECH REPUBLIC: Award for CESKA Pojistovna - first place in the category of the "Clients friendliest non-life insurance company''

CZECH Rep 1Q2013: a calm quarter before the spring flooding

The Czech insurance market showed in 1Q2013 its traditional quiet evolution, recording a 3.30% growth of the GWP volume, to CZK 41 billion, a positive evolution common to both life and non-life insurance lines. However, denominated in euro, the figures look somehow different, due to the 4% Croon's exchange rate depreciation y-o-y. Thus, the total GWP volume calculated in euro amounted to EUR 1.59 billion, 0.7% less than in 1Q2012.

CZECH REPUBLIC: Profit of CP last year grew by 9% in 2012

Ceska pojistovna again confirmed its strong position in the Czech insurance market.
Its financial results last year, according to IFRS, showed a profit of CZK 3.9 billion after tax (+9% year-on-year) and total premiums written exceeded CZK 32 billion. The extremely stable position of Ceska pojistovna is evidenced by the A- rating recently affirmed by S&P, with a stable outlook.

The CZECH Rep. FY 2012: Higher profitability despite the stagnant trend in underwriting

The Czech insurers ended 2012 with a EUR 603.6 million aggregated profit before taxes, a 36.3% higher figure than in 2011, despite the stagnant trend of the underwriting activity. In terms of gross written premium, last year's results are fairly comparable with 2011 figures, with a total premium production of EUR 6.1 billion, 1.6% higher y-o-y considering the values of the main market indicators denominated in Euro. In national currency, GWP amounted to CZK 153.6 billion, almost 1% less than in 2011.
