Of the group GWP, €24.2bn came from property-casualty (P&C) reinsurance, while life and health (L&H) contributed €9bn. In terms of the operating result, the breakdown was €1.4bn and €737m for non-life and non-life reinsurance respectively.

In terms of net profit, P&C posted a 18.7% drop to 880 million euros, while L&H saw a 197 million euro increase to 588 million euros in the company’s latest financial data.

CEO Jean-Jacques Henchoz: “In the 2022 financial year we once again demonstrated Hannover Re’s resilience. The environment in which we operate remains challenging. Non-life reinsurance in particular had to accept high losses from natural catastrophes, the war in Ukraine and the pandemic in 2022.

“Thanks to good earnings contributions from investments and life and health reinsurance, we were still able to deliver a pleasing consolidated result. Building on this success, we can offer our shareholders an even more attractive dividend.”

The dividend payment to be proposed to Hannover Re’s Annual General Meeting is €6 per share.
