CCR Re’s combined ratio stood at 103.2%. Life technical margin was 2.2%. Excluding the managed impact of the Covid-19 pandemic (€49 million before and after reinsurance) and the Beirut explosion (€24 million before reinsurance and €15 million after reinsurance), underwriting margins continued to improve thanks to pricing action.

 

Non-life combined ratio

 

CCR Re's return on investment was 2.6%. The portfolio had a market value of €2.9 billion at December 31, 2020, up by some €400 million (+16%) compared to the previous year-end. This increase resulted in particular from the investment of the proceeds of CCR Re’s €300 million Tier 2 subordinated notes issue in July 2020.

 

Cost ratio improved to 4.9%, in line with the trajectory set in the Streamline strategic plan.

 

EBITER came to €39 million.

 

CCR Re’s net income for the year was €18 million.

 

Its solvency ratio stood at 199.2% at December 31, 2020, in the optimal [180%-220%] range defined by the risk appetite framework.
