The group has a target of a 15% return on equity after tax from and including 2015. Over time, organic growth is expected to be in line with GDP-growth in the company’s market areas in the Nordic countries and the Baltic states. Profitable growth in excess of this shall be achieved through pursuing a disciplined acquisition strategy. The annual combined ratio shall be within the corridor 90- 93 (not discounted). Moreover, the targeted cost ratio is around 15%. A reduction is expected in the underlying cost ratio and loss ratio, but Gjensidige will endeavour to strike a balance between good profitability and increased investments in order to ensure strong competitiveness in future. In the short and medium term, the combined ratio is expected to be in the lower half of the target range. However, extraordinary circumstances relating to the weather and the proportion of large losses, and to run-off effects from previous years can bring the combined ratio outside the target range in both directions.
