The Company’s solvency margin as at December 31, 2011, amounted to 845,48 million of euros, that is, 5,9 times higher than that established as a requirement by the legislation in force. Thus, OCASO has maintained a privileged position with regard to its competitors for many years now.
OCASO’s risk selection policy has brought, for many years, significant net profit. Net profit for FY 2011, after tax, was 106,69 million of euros which, consolidated with the profit obtained by the rest of companies in the Group, amounted to a total of 110,43 million of euros.
The prestigious firm A.M. Best (www.ambest.com), the specialist in solvency and financial strength analysis and rating for insurance companies, has confirmed OCASO’s financial strength rating, with an A (Excellent) rating.
