Insurers' aggregate net profits decreased by more than 32% during last year (or by EUR 17.1 million in absolute value) to EUR 36.2 million. It is worth mention, the presented figures include only the profits reported by the six local insurers (4 non-life and the two life insurers), being not considered the profits realized by the other 11 EU branches active on local market (seven non-life EU branches and four foreign life insurance branch offices).
Per business lines, the aggregate net profits reported by the two local life insurance companies (SEB Life and Pension Baltic SE and CBL Life) increased by almost five times from EUR 3.3 million to EUR 16.1 million, as FKTK figures indicates.
