Harlin also said that AXA XL has achieved significant increases in revenues, particularly in P&C and specialty insurance.

“The favorable pricing environment for insurance continues to improve, with Q3 renewals seeing significant rate increases,” said Harlin. “Given a series of severe natural catastrophes, including Hurricane Dorian and Typhoons Faxai and Hagibis, AXA XL recorded an above-average loss level for natural catastrophes in the third quarter and at the start of the fourth quarter, mainly due to reinsurance. “

At the same time, the Group’s Solvency II ratio fell by three points to 187%, mainly due to unfavorable financial market conditions due to the fall in interest rates.

“AXA’s Solvency II ratio was 187%, well within its target range, demonstrating the strength and resilience of the Group’s balance sheet, even in a context of very low interest rates at the end of September,” said Harlin.
