Kooperativa, part of the Vienna Insurance Group, has become the largest insurer in Slovakia after last year’s merger with small life insurer Poisťovňa SLSP. Its underwritten premiums are up 32% annually to €620m and its net profit rose 21% to €36.1m. It will distribute 86% of its net profit as dividends. The merged insurer continues to offer bank-insurance products with Erste Group (SLSP bank in Slovakia). Its other priority is digital processes.
