Philippines’ state insurer scores 21% YoY profit in Q1’24

Total assets jumped 10% YoY to $30b.

Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) announced a net income of $640m (P37b) for the first quarter of 2024, marking a 21% increase on a year-on-year (YoY) basis.

This growth is attributed to robust revenues totalling $1.5b (P85b), reflecting a 17% YoY rise.

President and General Manager Wick Veloso attributed the profitability growth to increased investments in key sectors such as infrastructure, food, telecommunications, energy, and mining. Global investments also saw a significant rise, with financial assets income increasing by $480m (P28b) or 45% YoY.
