The Kenya Reinsurance Corporation (Kenya Re) has today reported a profit after Tax of Ksh3.62 billion for the year ended December 31, 2022, representing a 15% growth compared to 2021 full year results of Ksh3.16 billion.

The Corporation’s gross written premiums grew by 23% to stand at Ksh24.98 billion while net earned premiums of Ksh22.15 billion grew by 16% compared to last year’s Ksh19.04 billion.

The commendable performance is largely driven by the Reinsurer’s continued improvement in the reinsurance portfolio, enhancing customer-centricity, intensified market engagements to improve visibility, diversification of the portfolios and markets, speedy processing of fully supported claims, inculcating positive culture to support service delivery, enhanced partnership with cedants and intermediaries and market development and segmentation.

Total revenues went up 15% to Ksh26.68 billion, supported by growth in investment income and gross premiums written. Additionally Kenya Re’s five-year business strategy has continued to reap dividends with non-funded income expanding and reinforced by strong growth from fire and engineering classes of business.

Speaking about the financial results, Kenya Re’s Board Chairman Catherine Kimura said: “We are pleased to announce this improved financial performance. It is a testament of continued resilience in the face of risks in our operating environment, caused by local and international events, such as the general elections, drought, and post Covid-19 economic impact.”

Acting Managing Director Michael Mbeshi said: “These results are a clear demonstration of our remarkable success in executing our five-year strategic plan, where we outperformed’ our expectations in all the core measures. We have significantly scaled our business via strategic investments in new business lines and innovation with the key focus being Kenya and key countries with East, Southern and Northern Africa setting the stage for the next phase of our strategy.”
