The Länsförsäkringar Alliance began the year strongly, in terms of both earnings and growth. Profit for the Alliance’s total non-life insurance business strengthened, largely due to an increased portfolio combined with lower claims costs. In the banking operations, business volumes continued to rise, and profit increased 45%. Managed assets in the unitlinked life assurance company also continued to increase. The Alliances’ total solvency capital strengthened during the quarter by slightly more than SEK 1 billion.” says Sten Dunér, President of Länsförsäkringar AB.

The Länsförsäkringar Alliance is neither a legal entity nor, in the legal sense of the term, a Group; it is an alliance between 23 independent regional insurance companies that jointly own Länsförsäkringar AB. Länsförsäkringar's earnings from non-life insurance consist of the total of the earnings of the 23 regional insurance companies and of the jointly-owned Länsförsäkringar AB, excluding life assurance and banking.
