Impact24 -- Achievements

 

 

  • Ageas opened its reinsurance activity to third parties trading under the brand Ageas Re

  • To support the development of its core business, Ageas invested in its agency distribution channel by partnering with Million Dollar Round Table

  • Exploring new partnerships with the ambition to participate in ecosystems and the platform economy, Ageas teamed up with eBaoTech Corporation at Group level and with Amazon in the UK

  • Ageas obtained the CO2-neutral label issued by CO2 Logic

Hans De Cuyper, CEO Ageas:

« Ageas continued to perform well commercially and operationally in the third quarter of 2022. This translated into sustained growth in inflows in the Life business in China and an increase across the business in Non-Life.
The strong combined ratio and good margins in Life indicate that the insurance activities continue to perform within the Impact24 operating targets. It is mainly the low interest rates in China and the net capital losses in Asia that have affected the Group net result in the third quarter.
In the context of our Impact24 strategy, we took important steps that will drive our business forward in terms of growth, commercial excellence, integration of data & technology and sustainability.
I want to thank our people around the world for demonstrating their strong focus on value added growth under extreme volatile market circumstances. »
