  2. Baloise delivers strong operating performance

    In the first half of 2016, Baloise generated a profit of CHF 223.6 million (H1 2015: CHF 248.7 million) for its shareholders. The decrease was due to the addition of CHF 54.8 million to reserves in the German non-life business, which reduced the profit for the period by CHF 37.9 million. If it had not added to its reserves, Baloise would have generated a profit of CHF 261.5 million for its shareholders. Despite the competitive environment, Baloise’s business volume remained unchanged year on year at CHF 5,623.9 million. After the addition to its reserves, Baloise’s net combined ratio was a healthy 92.5 per cent, only just above the prior-year level. The net return on insurance assets rose to 1.8 per cent (H1 2015: 1.6 per cent).
