Amslico beats written premium targets

AMSLICO Life, the Slovak branch of the American International Group (AIG), has announced preliminary net profits of Sk200 million in 2001, a 44 per cent increase over the previous year. Written premiums climbed 21 per cent to Sk2.6 billion last year, beating company targets by Sk100 million.

This year the company plans to increase net profits to Sk260 million and collect premiums of Sk3 billion, said Amslico representatives.
