  2. Baloise delivers good half-year results

    “I can look back on an eventful first half of 2018 with satisfaction,” says Group CEO of Baloise, Gert De Winter. “We are growing in the attractive non-life business, a segment that we have been specifically targeting, and in Germany the combined ratio was within the target range for this period. Our capitalisation remains exceptionally strong, which Standard & Poor’s recently recognised by upgrading our rating to ‘A+’ with a stable outlook. We are on track in terms of our volume of business and earnings, and so I’m looking to the second half of 2018 with great optimism. I am also very excited about the capacity for innovation being shown across the Baloise Group. Each month for the first six months of the year, we launched at least one new innovative insurance product on the market, entered into one future-focused collaboration or invested in a company. This rate of innovation clearly demonstrates that Baloise is actively addressing the challenges of tomorrow and is forging ahead with its Simply Safe strategy, working with great agility to secure future success.”
