The insurer said its net premium earned increased by 76% compared to 2018, reflecting the company’s strategy towards higher retention and prudent risk selection. Its strategy towards risk selection has also resulted in a very positive outcome, with underwriting profit surging by 210% compared to 2018. This was a result of conscious growth measures put in place to safeguard the company’s profitability despite the challenging environment.
