Admiral sees profit boost beyond analyst expectation

Admiral logo

This result exceeded analyst's expectations of a pre-tax profit of £159.3m.

Admiral's UK combined operating ratio deteriorated from 82.9% in H1 2010 to 90.4%. The insurer said this was a result of lower levels of prior year reserve releases (continuing the pattern emerging in the second half of last year), in part offset by a lower expense ratio and a lower loss ratio on business earned in the period.

For UK car insurance the group's underwriting profit decreased to £21.7m (H1 2010: £23.3m)
