Net income during the period under review was €2.48bn, a 19% increase, with core earnings per share surging 25.6% to €5.97 from last year’s €4.75.
Total business volume during the April-June quarter increased by 5.9% to €39.6bn against €37.4bn year-on-year (YoY).
Affirming its full-year outlook, Allianz attributed the increase in the total business volume to the life and health and property and casualty (P&C) business segments.
While the rise of the life and health business was primarily attributed to strong single-premium volumes in the US, P&C benefited from higher pricing and volumes.
A decline in AuM-driven revenues in the company’s asset management business segment somewhat offset this growth.

In H1 2023, the total business volume and operating profit were €85.6bn and €7.51bn, respectively.
Allianz CEO Oliver Bäte said: “Allianz’s excellent results in the first half of 2023 demonstrate the strength of our fundamentals as we capitalise on our global scale and diversified business mix for the benefit of our customers and our shareholders.
“I am particularly pleased by the strong performance in the property and casualty business where we have achieved a strong 92% combined ratio, by the continued volume and profit growth of our life and health business, as well as by the resilience of our asset management segment, which recorded positive third-party net inflows for the second quarter in a row despite cautious investor sentiment.”
