Segment reporting

The accounting policies for the reportable segments are in line with the consolidated accounting policies. Earnings before taxes for the segments were determined taking the following components into consideration: summation of the IFRS profits/(losses) in the individual companies, taking the elimination of net investment income in the respective segment and impairment of goodwill into consideration. All other consolidation effects (profit/(loss) for the period of associates, elimination of intercompany profits/(losses) and other cross-segment effects) are included in “Consolidation”. The segment profit/(loss) thus obtained is reported to the Management Board of UNIQA Insurance Group AG for managing the Group in the following operating segments:

UNIQA Austria – includes the Austrian insurance business.

  • Eastern Europe (EE – Romania and Ukraine)
  • Southeastern Europe (SEE – Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia)
