Allianz General’s Combined Ratio also improved to 87.3 percent as compared to 87.8 percent in 2021 as a result of continued technical excellence. According to the ISM Insurance Services Malaysia Berhad (ISM) market performance report, Allianz General captured 13.3 percent market share as of December 2022 and maintained its position as the general business market leader in the country.
  • “Allianz General recorded a strong performance, delivering top-line growth, higher underwriting profitability, and a healthy combined ratio in 2022. Allianz General's motor segment performed very well. We launched a few initiatives, taking our Allianz Windscreen Replacement On-the-Go service nationwide and adding hybrid trucks to our Allianz Road Ranger fleet. It is worth noting that the industry volume of car sales hit an all-time high at 720,000 units sold last year, and the delay in the delivery of new cars means we will witness a spillover into the first quarter of 2023. In fact, in 2023, we expect motor claims to return to pre-pandemic levels and anticipate the announcement of Phase 2B of the Liberalisation of Motor and Fire Tariff sometime this year. Nonetheless, our technical pricing expertise should put us in good stead,” said Sean, who is also Chief Executive Officer of Allianz General.
