  On this occasion, Bertrand Labilloy, Chairman & CEO of CCR Re, commented: “In 2022, the targets of the development plan were once again    achieved. This strong dynamic justifies the contemplated €200m capital increase that would be subscribed by SMABTP and MACSF and would    enable CCR Re to take advantage of the current buoyant market.”






- CCR Re continued to pursue the profitable growth trajectory defined by the board of directors, in a market hit by a combination of major shocks.

- CCR Re does not have direct exposure to Ukraine nor Russia, neither in its reinsurance portfolio, nor in its asset portfolio, and therefore the direct consequences of the war in Ukraine were limited.

- The inflationary backdrop was taken into account, the excess inflation on the cost of claims being assessed prudently, leading to an impact of +564 bp on the Non-Life combined ratio and of -123 bp on the Life technical margin.



- Total premium income amounted to €987m in 2022, up 17% compared with 2021 (at constant and current exchange rates).

- The business mix was as follows:




−    The combined ratio came to 98.7% (96.6% in 2021). The costs related to natural disasters (gross €62m and €35m net of retrocession) was lower than in 2021 (gross €79m and €43m net), offset by the increase in man-made claims. In Life, the profitability of the portfolio improved despite the consequences of inflation, with a technical margin of 3.6%. 

−    The yield on CCR Re’s investment assets came to 2.3%. The assets of CCR Re stood at €3.0 billion at market value, stable compared with 2021, including €207m in unrealized capital gains (down €224m compared with December 31, 2021).

−    The cost ratio of CCR Re stood at 4.1%, down compared with 2021.

−    EBITER amounted to €64m.

−    CCR Re’s net income for the year was €42m, stable compared with 2021 (€41m).

−    CCR Re’s solvency ratio stood at December 31, 2022 was 205%, in the optimal [180%-220%] range defined by the risk appetite framework. 
The Board of Directors of CCR Re, meeting on March 15, 2023, decided to propose to the General Meeting of Shareholders the payment of a dividend of €16.8m, in line with the Streamline 2020-2023 business plan.
