Sovereign Trust Insurance Reports 23% Growth in Revenue in 2023

Sovereign Trust Insurance Plc recently released its 2023 audited financial statements in line with the new reporting format of IFRS-17 to the general public having gotten the requisite approval from the industry’s regulatory authority, the National Insurance Commission (NAICOM).

Inspite of the challenging operating environment that characterised operations of most businesses in the country in 2023, the Underwriting Firm maintained its growth trajectory remarkably in the period under review when compared with the performance of year 2022.

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Underwriting Firm, Mr. Olaotan Soyinka said the performance of the company in 2023 is quite encouraging considering the various business challenges that the insurance industry had to deal with in the past year. He said there is definitely room for improvement in the days ahead and that the underwriting firm is poised to take advantage of the opportunities that are inherent in the insurance marketplace.

Sovereign Trust Insurance Plc recorded a total of N19.3 billion insurance revenue in 2023 as against the sum of N15.7 billion that was written in 2022, representing a 23% growth rate for the year. Total Assets of the underwriting firm also grew by 33% to N22.7 billion in 2023 as against N17.1 billion in 2022. Equally of note is the increase in the company’s Total Equity which also grew by 30% from N10.4 billion in 2022 to N13.5 billion in 2023. The return on investment of the company also grew by 49% from N548.7 million in 2022 to N819.4 million in 2023. The company equally recorded a Profit Before Tax of N1.4 billion just as it did in 2022.

The Managing Director/CEO of the company, Mr. Olaotan Soyinka, while briefing newsmen in Lagos said the Management of the company is committed to meeting and surpassing the expectations and aspirations of its shareholders and stakeholders alike.

“These performance levels are a confirmation of the management’s determination to effectively and strategically position the company as one of the leading and vibrant insurance companies in the country while also making conscious efforts at propelling the company to a profitable height for shareholders’ delight” in the years ahead.”

The MD/CEO also hinted that the underwriting firm will be paying dividends to its shareholders this year.
