On the non-life side, the MTPL line has recorded the most impressive positive trend, with GWP increasing by 37.42%, to HUF 131.48 billion (EUR 422 million), supported by the strong increase in tariffs, but also by a revitalized the car market.

Yet, three non-life insurance classes have recorded a real collapse in the GWP volume: accident insurance (GWP down by 61%), health insurance (down by 71.6%) and GTPL (down by almost 47%).
