Chubb announces Q1 results

Major property and casualty (P&C) insurer Chubb has published its financial results for the first three months of 2022, and chair and chief executive Evan Greenberg says the company is “off to a great start” despite a decrease in net income.

In the first quarter, Chubb posted a net income of US$1.97 billion. For the same period in 2021, the corresponding amount was US$2.3 billion. Core operating income, meanwhile, grew 43.6% to US$1.64 billion.

In terms of underwriting income, here’s how Chubb performed in the three-month span:

Greenberg commented: “We had an excellent start to the year with record operating earnings and underwriting results, double-digit commercial premium growth accompanied by rate increases in excess of loss cost, and growing momentum in our consumer businesses globally.”

“Core operating income per share of US$3.82 was up 52%, P&C underwriting income more than doubled, and our P&C combined ratio was 84.3% – all records.”

The CEO, who expects investment income to grow amid rising interest rates and widening spreads, added: “We are off to a great start to the year, and I remain optimistic and confident in our ability to outperform.”
