BNP Paribas Assurance has made it into the Top 3 of Solving International's benchmark, behind Crédit Mutuel and Crédit Agricole. To measure the operational performance of insurance groups, Solving performs a crossanalysis of their growth, technical profitability, and solvency margin.
Bancassurance companies were again the top performers in all the retail lines (property, personal protection, and savings), as well as in group retirement savings. The benchmark also put BNP Paribas Assurance in third place among France's insurers for personal savings (8.2% market share, ahead of Axa).
The press had the following comments on the benchmark: "increasing strength of BNP Paribas" (L'Agefi); "the emergence of BNP Paribas Assurance particularly strong in medical insurance, protection (personal and group), and savings-is one of the surprises of the benchmark" (Les Echos); "the position attained by BNP Paribas Assurance is a revelation" (L'Argus de l'Assurance).
