Munich Re achieves a strong result in Q3
and will likely surpass the 2019 forecast
10:40 AM CEST 2019/10/18
Munich Re generated a consolidated result of approximately €850m in the third quarter, despite high major-loss expenditure. The Q3 result is due to good operational performance, strong currency gains, and a very good investment result.
Munich Re expects to beat its target for the consolidated result of €2.5bn for 2019, despite typically considerable uncertainties about developments in major losses and the capital markets during the rest of the year.
As always, the figures are subject to the outcome of the ongoing quarterly closing, and will be published by Munich Re as planned on 7 November 2019.
