“The impact of COVID-19 on property and casualty business segment revenues has been more pronounced in the second quarter of 2020 but our franchise has proven resilient in terms of revenue growth,” said Giulio Terzariol, chief financial officer at Allianz.

He added: “Adjusting for the impacts of COVID-19, the underlying performance remains strong with a normalised combined ratio of less than 94% as our focus on technical excellence and productivity gains pays off."

Commenting on Allianz’s results, Christian Badorff, vice-president and senior analyst at Moody’s, said: “Earnings in the quarter held up well, thanks to solid underwriting performance in P/C, improving investment results, and stable contribution by the Asset Management Segment.”
