The company, which specialises in non-life insurance, reported a turnover of TND185.8m, registering an increase of TND16m or 9.4% over 2019. This growth rate was above the average annual growth rate achieved by the company over the past five years (+ 9.0%).

The overall technical results reached TND7.6m in 2020 against an average of TND2.1m over the period 2014-2019. All classes of insurance carried out by the company showed positive results.
