Commercial lines Insurance revenues increased by 5% to EUR 31.3 billion, AXA XL Reinsurance revenues decreased by 27% to EUR 3.2 billion as a result of a strong reduction in Nat Cat exposure, while Personal lines revenues increased by 4% to EUR 17.0 billion, resulting from higher revenues in Motor (+4%), and in non-Motor (+4%).

Total Asset Management revenues decreased by 3% to EUR 1.6 billion, driven by lower management fees due to unfavorable market conditions, and lower performance fees from elevated levels in 2021.

"We remain focused on executing our strategy. We recorded good growth across our technical and cash-generative businesses, particularly in P&C Insurance, Health and Protection, while continuing to reposition away from Nat Cat reinsurance and traditional General Account business. Our fundamentals are strong and our distinctive franchise can deliver sustainable growth in the future, in particular by addressing new areas of coverage, including from the energy transition."
