RSA sees decline in annual profits

RSA has released its financial performance figures for 2009, describing the year as one that saw the firm enjoy a strong performance.

Net written premiums rose by 4% to £6.7bn, and RSA achieved an operating result of £777m.

Pre-tax profits were recorded at £554m, a decline of 27% from 2008’s pre-tax profits of £759m.

Profits after tax were similar, down 28% from £486m to £419m.

Last year the firm saw pre-tax profits rise by 13%, as it announced a headcount reduction of 1,200 to help cut costs.

Group Chief Executive Officer Andy Haste has said that the firm’s capital position remains strong, and that it managed to achieve a positive underwriting result in all regions.

RSA has forecast further good results in the future, and predicts the UK will move into positive territory during 2010.
