Tryg reported a Q3 insurance service result of DKK 1,513m (DKK 1,785m), adversely impacted by more than DKK 600m of weather-related claims.

The underlying claims ratio for the Group improved by 0.5 percentage points. The investment result for the quarter was DKK 265m (DKK -203m), driven predominantly by positive returns from fixed-income asset classes in the match portfolio. The pre-tax result was DKK 1,225m. Tryg is paying a Q3 DPS of DKK 1.85 and additionally Tryg is launching a share buyback programme of DKK 1bn following the Q3 results.

Statement by Group CEO Johan Kirstein Brammer:
Tryg’s core business saw a premium growth of 4.4%. The top-line development was driven primarily by the Private and Commercial businesses. We perform well and have a solid core insurance business, in spite of the external geopolitical and macroeconomic challenges and a quarter of extraordinary weather events.
Our insurance service result totaled DKK 1,513m despite net weather-related claims of DKK 611m, which amounts to the highest level of net weather claims in a single quarter for last 15 years, and hence testifies how extraordinary the quarter has been with regards to weather. The storm Hans caused havoc, especially in Norway, and total claims of approx. DKK 300m across Scandinavia. Additionally, numerous cloudbursts, a record wet July, hailstorms and wildfires in Southern Europe impacted our customers in the past quarter. These events gave Tryg the opportunity to show our customers that we are there to help and guide them safely when the unexpected happens.
Our pre-tax result is up by more than 25% thanks to a resilient insurance result and good capital market developments in the quarter compared to Q2 2022. The overall profitability supports a very healthy capitalization, and therefore we are pleased to announce a quarterly dividend per share of 1.85, an increase of 17% from Q3 2022 driven by the higher earnings power from the enlarged group, synergies delivery and improvements in the underlying business. Furthermore, following Q3 results, Tryg will launch a share buyback programme of DKK 1bn, reflecting a strong solvency position helped by robust organic capital generation.
Two weeks ago, we have announced a number of strategically important changes that will collectively fuel our competitiveness and allow us to reinvest in the future. The changes underpin our commitment to deliver on our 2024 financial targets while we gear up for a new strategy period. By making these changes, we are future-proofing the enlarged Group and adapting the organisation to the current macroeconomic environment.
Tryg hosts a conference call today at 10:00 CET. CEO Johan Kirstein Brammer, CFO Barbara Plucnar Jensen and CTO Mikael Kärrsten will present the results in brief followed by Q&As. The conference call will be held in English. An on-demand version will be available shortly after the conference call has ended.

Hydro completes sale to Glencore1.12.2023 16:30:00 CET | Press release
Hydro has completed the USD 1.11 billion transaction for the sale of 30 percent interest in the Brazilian alumina refinery Hydro Alunorte and Hydro’s 5 percent interest in the bauxite producer Mineracão Rio do Norte (MRN), together with Vale’s 40 percent stake in MRN. “We are looking forward to work with Glencore to further develop Alunorte. Glencore has broad industrial experience within metals and mining, which adds to the significant progress our bauxite and alumina area has made to bring down the footprint of alumina production. This enables Hydro to strengthen our position in low-carbon aluminium,” says President and CEO, Hilde Merete Aasheim. Hydro and Glencore will continue efforts to reduce carbon emissions from Alunorte through the fuel switch project that aims to substitute fuel oil with LNG, and the electrification of boilers. This will bring Alunorte to the first decile on the global carbon curve already in 2025, positioning Alunorte as a leading supplier of low-carbon alum
Hydro fullfører salget til Glencore1.12.2023 16:30:00 CET | Pressemelding
Hydro har fullført transaksjonen på 1,11 milliarder USD for salg av 30 prosent eierandel i det brasilianske aluminaraffineriet Hydro Alunorte og Hydros eierandel på 5 prosent i bauksittprodusenten Mineracão Rio do Norte (MRN), samt Vales eierandel på 40 prosent i MRN. – Vi ser frem til å samarbeide med Glencore for å videreutvikle Alunorte. Glencore har bred industriell erfaring innen metaller og gruvedrift, noe som forsterker den betydelige fremgangen forretningsområdet vårt for bauksitt og alumina vårt har gjort for å redusere fotavtrykket fra aluminaproduksjonen. Dette gjør Hydro i stand til å styrke vår posisjon innen lavkarbonaluminium, sier konsernsjef Hilde Merete Aasheim. Hydro og Glencore vil fortsette arbeidet med å redusere karbonutslippene fra Alunorte gjennom drivstoffbytteprosjektet som har som mål å erstatte tungolje med LNG, og elektrifisering av fyrkjeler. Dette vil bringe Alunorte til den første desilen på den globale karbonkurven allerede i 2025, og posisjonere Aluno
