Covéa Insurance has revealed a fall in underwriting profit to £1.8m for 2018 (2017: £12.4m).
The provider’s profit after tax also declined to £1.5m, compared to £24.1m in the preceding year, and its combined operating ratio (COR) deteriorated to 99.7% (2017: 97.5%).
According to Covéa the results were driven by flat personal lines premiums due to “extremely competitive” market conditions and strong inflationary claims trends, particularly in motor.
