Allianz Confirms FY23 Targets Despite Q3 Profit Declines

Story Highlights

The German financial services company Allianz reaffirmed its financial target for 2023 after posting a decline in third-quarter profits.

Allianz SE (DE:ALV) confirmed its operating profit target for FY23 despite a decline in its Q3 profits. The company expects its operating profits to reach around €14.2 billion in 2023. In the third-quarter earnings report, the company’s total volume reached €36.5 billion, reflecting a 4.5% increase. However, the operating profit experienced a decline, falling by 14.6% to €3.5 billion.

The positive revenue growth was mainly due to the positive performance of its property-casualty business, driven by increased prices and volumes. On the flip side, this segment reported an unusually elevated number of claims resulting from natural catastrophes. This impacted the company’s overall operating profit along with its insurance segment’s numbers.

The company’s life/health business segment grew due to robust volumes of single premiums in the U.S.

Allianz’s stock was trading up by 1.71% today at the time of writing.

Based in Germany, Allianz is a globally renowned financial services company with a footprint in over 70 countries. It provides a wide range of insurance and asset management solutions.
