MADRID, 8 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The insurance group Helvetia, the main shareholder of the Spanish company Caser, registered a net attributable profit of 211.2 million francs (216.6 million euros) in the whole of the first half of 2022, which is equivalent to a drop of 15, 8% compared to earnings for the same period last year, as reported by the company on Thursday.
The firm's revenue fell 26.9% compared to last year, to 4,600.2 million francs (4,718.3 million euros). The biggest change is due to the fact that the company registered a negative impact due to its investments, since income from premiums stood at 4,928.5 million (5,055.1 million euros), 0.5% less.
Regarding costs, the benefits of the insured represented a disbursement of 2,874.3 million (2,948.1 million euros), 34% less, mainly due to a positive effect of the changes in actuarial reserves.
Acquisition costs grew by 3.1%, to 885.2 million francs (907.9 million euros), while operating and administrative expenses advanced by 10.3%, to 600.1 million (615.5 millions of euros).
