“Business volumes for the Länsförsäkringar Alliance continued to perform positively. Premiums earned in non-life insurance business increased 6% to SEK 11.8 billion and we noted healthy growth in most areas, particularly in accident insurance and household and homeowner insurance. Agria continued to make a strong contribution to earnings. However higher claims costs, primarily in fire and water-damage claims, and lower investment income meant that earnings were weaker year-on-year.

The strong growth and customer inflow continued in the banking operations and the earnings trend was also favorable resulting in the best ever quarterly earnings. We secured market growth of 10% in household lending during the period.

Gratifying achievements in the first half of the year include high rankings in reputation and customer satisfaction surveys. For our digital services we won the award “Mobile Bank of the Year” at Mobilgalan and the Web Service Award for “Best Mobile Site and App” says Sten Dunér, President Länsförsäkringar AB, the alliance’s jointly owned company.
