Published

AIICO MD 2

AIICO Insurance Plc has reported a profit of N5 billion profit for the year 2021, a slight rise from the N4.8 billion reported the previous year.

The year 2021 was a recovery year for the insurer as it improved its premium written and income during the year. However, a cursory look at the result shows that the amount reported as profit was almost flat despite that the insurer improved gross premium income by a whopping 17% to N70 billion from N60 billion during the pandemic period.

Further analysis shows that this was driven by high claims expenses accompanied by a loss in ‘other income’ during the period when compared with the previous year.

Key highlight of the report

  • Gross premium written was high by 16% to close at N71 billion from the N61 billion witnessed during the Covid year. This shows that the insurer rode on the year of recovery to improve its performance.
  • Net premium income stood at N57 billion in 2021 from N52 billion in 2020, the result shows a 11% high from the previous year following reinsurance expenses valued at N12 billion in 2021.
  • Net Claims expenses amounted to a negative N40 billion in 2021 against the positive N31 billion in the previous year, depicting a 226% difference in both years.
  • The insurer sustained an underwriting profit of N30 billion in 2021. The result is impressive when compared with the negative N37 billion in 2020.
  • The company’s total assets was down by N20 billion, representing 9% dip from N243 billion to N222 billion in 2021.
