Allianz Malaysia beat tough operating conditions plaguing the insurance industry after net profit rose 18% YoY to $21.85m (MYR87m) in Q1, according to Maybank Kim Eng, on the back of lower than expected expenses.

Net earned premiums also rose 7% with market share of premiums clocking in at 11.6% in Q1. Product mix also improved as recurring premiums edged up 5.4% YoY to buck a 4.9% decline in single premiums. However, annualised new premiums dipped 2% YoY amidst slower consumer demand.
