  • CCR Re’s combined ratio stood at 96.6%, representing a significant decrease versus 2020. Against a background of high natural disaster claims, particularly in Germany and Belgium, CCR Re benefited from the protection provided by the retrocession programme (reducing the cost of natural disasters from €79m gross to €43m, net of retrocession).
  • In Life, profitability improved with a technical margin of 3.1% while remaining impacted by the cost of Covid-related claims.
  • CCR Re’s return on invested assets was 1.9%. As of December 31, 2021, the portfolio had a market value of €3.0bn (an increase of €100m compared to the previous year-end), which included €431m in unrealized capital gains.
  • The cost ratio continued its decline to 4.3%.
  • EBITER (Earnings Before Interests, Taxes and Equalization Reserve) amounted to €62m.
  • All told, CCR Re’s net income for the year was €41m, up considerably on the €18m posted in 2020.
  • At its meeting on March 16, 2022, CCR Re’s Board of Directors recommended a dividend payout to shareholders of €12.3m.
  • At end-2021, CCR Re’s solvency ratio stood at 192%, in the optimal [180%-220%] range defined by the risk appetite framework.

The occurrence of the war in Ukraine, after the close of the fiscal year, is not expected to adversely affect CCR Re.


CCR Re's reinsurance portfolio is not directly exposed to Ukraine or Russia. The indirect exposure of its Specialty lines is likely to remain limited.


CCR Re’s asset portfolio has no direct exposure and does not hold any assets denominated in rubles or hryvnia. The portfolio is resilient to the market upheaval caused by this event.
