Zurich Insurance FY19 Profit Rises, Lifts Dividend

Zurich Insurance Group AG (ZURVY) on Thursday reported that its fiscal 2019 net income attributable to shareholders increased 12 percent to $4.15 billion from last year's $3.72 billion. The company noted that attributable profit was the highest since 2010.

Earnings per share grew 13 percent to 27.51 Swiss francs from 24.28 francs a year ago.

Business operating profit climbed 16 percent to $5.30 billion from last year's $4.57 billion, driven by underlying growth across the business and a strong underwriting performance in Property & Casualty or P&C.

P&C gross written premiums and policy fees increased 2 percent to $34.18 billion, while Life gross written premiums, policy fees and insurance deposit was nearly flat at $33.48 billion.

Further, the company proposed a rise in dividend to 20 francs per share.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
