Allianz 3 Profit Rises; Says Confident Of FY18 Targets - Quick Facts

Financial services company Allianz Group (AZSEY.PK) Friday reported that its third-quarter net income attributable to shareholders increased to 1.94 billion euros from 1.57 billion euros last year.

Earnings per share were 4.54 euros, higher than 3.52 euros a year ago.

Operating profit grew 20.6 percent to 2.99 billion euros from prior year's 2.48 billion euros, mostly driven by our Property-Casualty business, which experienced lower claims from natural catastrophes, a better underlying claims development and a decreased expense ratio, as well as strong premium growth.

Looking ahead, the company said it is confident to reach targets also for this year.
