Insr Insurance Group ASA ceases to write risk in its Danish operation.

As earlier communicated by the Company, the Board in Insr Insurance Group ASA has decided do discontinue the Company’s Danish operations.

As noted in that communication, the Norwegian Financial Supervisory Authority (NFSA) is of the opinion that this business should have been organized as a branch office instead of the current cross-border activity and had given a preliminary assessment that a requirement to immediately stop writing business in Denmark would be imposed on Insr. 

Insr has now received a ruling in accordance with the preliminary assessment requiring Insr to stop writing business in Denmark from September 18th, 2019. 

Key facts about the Danish operation first half year 2019:

- Eight employees

- Net earned premium of NOK 79 million

- Net cost ratio of 48% (not including services provided from head office in Norway)

- Net claims ratio of 77%
