LV experiences rapid growth and profit hike but takes £30m hit in December

John O Roarke is general insurance managing director at LV

However, £30m of this loss was, according to the insurer, attributable to the severe weather experienced in December. Investment income of £73m allowed LV to report profit of £30m, up dramatically from £7m in 2009. Combined operating ratio came in at 104.2%, a very slight deterioration on last year.

LV’s MD of general insurance, John O’Roarke, said the results were excellent and predicted that the general insurance book would record a 98% combined ratio in 2011.
