The company reported underwriting income of Rs 3.10 billion owing to the growth of 15% YoY in net premiums, a marginal increase of  1.29% YoY in Insurance Claims, and Acquisition Expenses while 11% YoY decrease in Management Expenses.

As per the financial statement issued by the company, the decline in profitability of the company was attributable to decreased investment income which went down by 14% YoY to Rs 1.20 billion and a net fair loss on financial assets of Rs 3.78 billion.

During the period, the rental income jumped by 6.5 times YoY to Rs 10 million owing to a recently acquired office building in Karachi and renovated office in Lahore that allow some floors to be available for rent, as per the research of Foundation Securities.

Meanwhile, the tax expenses of the company went down by 20% YoY to Rs 202 million.
