He indicated that the group’s net income increased by 11.9% to GH¢ 607.2 million as against GH¢ 542.7 million in 2017. This growth was driven predominantly by insurance premiums by the life and general business, which contributed 74.7% to Net Income.

Importantly too, net premium from life insurance subsidiary grew by 21.4% from GH¢ 286.5 million in 2017 to GH¢ 347.8 million in 2018, largely due to consistent improvement in the collection rate from 81% in 2017 to 85% in 2018 for individual life business.

Net premiums from January business also grew 12% from GH¢ 96.2 million in 2017 to GH¢ 107.7 million in 2018. Net investment income decreased by 18% to GH¢ 114.5 million in the year under review from GH¢ 139.7 million the previous year.
This performance was due to a 27.6% decline in investment income of Enterprise Life compared to 2017.

The underlying driver was decline of equity prices on the Ghana Stock Exchange which lead to capital losses on their stock holdings.In the other hand, investment income from the January insurance which was mainly from short term to medium term investments, grew by 21% from 2017.
