AXA, Europe’s second-largest insurer, reported a 6% increase in total revenue during the first quarter to €34 billion ($36.4 billion), compared with €31.8 billion ($34.1 billion) in Q1 2023.

The increase in Q1 gross written premiums (GWP) and other revenues was driven by the company’s property/casualty business, which rose by 7% on a comparable basis to €19.8 billion ($21.2 billion) from €18.6 billion ($19.9 billion) in Q1 2023.

Breaking down P/C results, AXA said:

  • Commercial lines premiums increased by 7% to €12.1 billion ($13.0 billion), compared with €11.5 billion ($12.3 billion) in Q1 2023. Q1 2024 commercial lines totals were driven by AXA XL Insurance, which saw a 6% rise in premiums, and favorable pricing. (AXA XL is the lead carrier on the excess of loss policy for the International Group of P&I Clubs, which will have claims from the Baltimore Bridge collapse).
  • AXA XL Reinsurance premiums increased by 9% to €1.3 billion ($1.4 billion), compared to €1.2 billion ($1.3 billion) during Q1 2023. This year’s Q1 premiums were driven by favorable prices in P/C, as well as higher volumes in specialty. (
  • Personal lines premiums increased by 6% to €6.4 billion ($6.9 billion), compared with €5.9 billion ($6.3 billion) in Q1 2023. Q1 2024 totals were driven by favorable prices in both motor and non-motor.
