other/Economic capital requirement ratio
21.04.2017


The economic capital requirement ratio of the UNIQA Group was 215 per cent on 31
December 2016 on the basis of the internal management formula and thus at a very
high level. This economic capital requirement ratio already reflects the sale of
shares in Italy. The year-on-year improvement is around 33 percentage points. As
well as operating improvements in the actuarial field of health and life
insurance, the sale of the Italian companies (closing expected in Q2/17) was a
major driver of the increased capital ratio.

The market consistent embedded value after minority interests of the UNIQA Group
improved by 7.3 per cent in the past year to EUR 5,068 million (2015: EUR 4,725
million). The value of in-force business (VIF) in life and health insurance
increased by 14.1 per cent to EUR 2,107 million (2015: EUR 1,847 million). The
new business margin improved to 4.3 per cent (2015: 2.4 per cent); for CEE, it
remained at a persistently high level of 5.4 per cent in 2016 (2015: 6.0 per
cent). 

These once again significantly improved ratios impressively demonstrate the
positive progress in the sustainable strengthening of the profitability of the
core business as part of the long-term growth strategy UNIQA 2.0 launched in
2011. At the same time, the progressive dividend policy with annual increases in
the dividend per share is thus continued and secured for the long term. 

The provisional regulatory capital requirement ratio according to Solvency II
(EIOPA standard formula) as of 31 December 2016 was 202 per cent. In accordance
with the legal regulations, this does not yet take into account the sale of the
Italian entities.
