Unexpectedly low major-loss expenditure leads to good preliminary result for Munich Re in Q1/2018
Although the closing activities for the Q1 consolidated financial statements of Munich Re are still ongoing, it is to be expected that the consolidated result will be in excess of €800m, mainly on account of low major-loss expenditure in reinsurance. The consolidated result for the first quarter of 2017 had amounted to €557m. The guidance for the 2018 consolidated result remains unchanged at €2.1–2.5bn.
