“ For the Länsförsäkringar AB Group, we look back on a highly successful year. All lines of business showed significantly improved earnings. Operating profit was nearly SEK 1.5 billion, which is a substantial improvement in year-on-year earnings. In non-life insurance, the technical result improved 41 percent, mainly attributable to Agria. The bank reported very strong earnings and improved profitability. We also see excellent volume growth in all of our businesses. Business volumes rose 12 percent in non-life insurance and 13 percent in banking, while insurance capital rose 21 percent in unit-linked life assurance.

In addition to favourable earnings and strong growth, we were pleased that surveys by the Swedish Quality Index (SKI) once again showed that we are the bank with the most satisfied retail customers. According to Privata Affärer, a swedish financial magazine, we are the Bank of the Year.

During the year, we conducted a number of successful development projects, all ultimately intended to develop our customer meeting places, both physical and digital.” says Sten Dunér, President of Länsförsäkringar AB.
