Insurance companies

In the first quarter, the volume of gross premiums of risk insurance decreased by 6% for the quarter, but increased by 7% compared to the first quarter of 2022.

Life insurance premiums decreased by 15% compared to the previous quarter and remained lower by 13% compared to the same period last year.

According to the results of the quarter, risk insurers received a profit comparable to previous years, and reached a return on capital at the level of 3%.

Life insurers have demonstrated a record return on capital (10%) in recent years as a result of a reduction in operating expenses and growth in investment income.

As of April 1, 2023, nine insurers violated at least one of the standards of solvency and capital adequacy and riskiness of operations.

Financial companies and pawnshops

In the first quarter, financial companies increased the volume of loans to enterprises by 30%, to households by 37%, and at the end of the quarter they made a profit.

Pawn shops demonstrated recovery: the volume of assets and new loans increased, interest income increased somewhat, and the financial result was positive.

During the quarter, the volume of factoring operations grew by a third, financial leasing operations by almost 40%. However, the volume of operations was still below pre-war levels.

Credit unions

In the first quarter, the assets of credit unions decreased, albeit more slowly than in the last six months. The loan portfolio decreased by 3%, and the share of non-performing loans remains significant — 32%.

The operating profit did not cover the formed reserves for credit losses, so the financial result in the segment is negative. Taking into account the losses, the capital also decreased.

The amount of funds attracted by unions further decreased: additional share contributions — by 6%, deposits — by 5%. As of April 1, 2023, 12 credit unions violated the capital adequacy standard.
