In the face of a challenging third quarter marked by a surge in natural disaster claims, Allianz (ETR:ALVG) SE has reaffirmed its financial targets for 2023. Today, the German insurance giant reported a decrease in net income to €2.02 billion ($2.16 billion) from €2.87 billion in the same period last year. Despite the decline in profits, Allianz saw its total revenue increase by 4.5% to €36.5 billion.

The growth in revenue was primarily driven by the property-casualty business, which benefited from higher prices and an increase in volumes. However, this segment also faced significant headwinds due to an unusually high number of catastrophe-related claims, which led to a 25% drop in operating profit for the sector.

Even with these challenges, Allianz remains steadfast in its commitment to achieving an annual operating profit of approximately €14.2 billion. The company's resilience and confidence in meeting its financial goals underscore its strategic strength amidst a period of heightened claims activity.
