RBS Insurance suffers 103% COR but profits soar

Paul Geddes

Its combined operating ratio (COR) failed to make it under the 100%, coming in at 103%. However this was a vast improvement on the H1 2010 COR of 124%.

The insurer experienced a 5.6% drop in earned premiums at £2.1bn (H1 2010: £2.2bn) and total income dropped from £2.2bn to £2bn. The provider put this down to its exit from the broker personal lines channel.

Underwriting profit increased to £495m (H1 2010: £432m) and RBS Insurance said this was due to an overhaul of its claims systems.
