23.07.2015 – Der US-Industrieversicherer Ace hat im zweiten Quartal 2015 einen Jahresüberschuss von 942 Mio. US-Dollar erwirtschaftet. Dies entspricht einem Plus von 20,8 Prozent gegenüber dem Vorjahreszeitraum (779 Mio. US-Dollar). Der operative Cashflow betrug 816 Mio. US-Dollar. Das Kapitalanlageergebnis stieg nach Unternehmensangaben um 3,1 Prozent auf 562 Mio. US-Dollar.
Evan G. Greenberg, Vorstandschef von ACE Limited, sagte zum Halbjahresergebnis: “Ace had an excellent second quarter with earnings per share essentially flat with prior year as a strong dollar impacted both revenue and earnings. After-tax operating income was 788 million dollar, or 2,40 dollar per share, leading to an operating ROE of 11.4 percent. We produced strong underwriting results marked by a P&C combined ratio of 87.7 percent and underwriting income that was flat with prior year and up 5.5 percent in constant dollars. Investment income was up three percent in constant currency – a terrific result given the interest rate environment. Global P&C net premiums written grew about 6.5 percent, or over 13 percent when adjusted for foreign exchange, as we took advantage of growth opportunities in the U.S., Asia and Latin America.”
Wie der Versicherer weiter mitteilte, stiegen die gebuchten Bruttoprämien auf 428 Mio. US-Dollar. Die Nettprämien beliefen sich im zweiten Halbjahr 2015 auf 252 Mio. US-Dollar.
