The impact of Brexit on European insurance companies has yet to surface, if their latest round of earnings reports are anything to go by.
British insurer Aviva posted a 13 percent increase in operating profit in the six months to June 30, 2016, citing growth in its UK business. Legal & General reported a 10 percent on-year increase in its adjusted operating profit for the same period.
French insurer AXA's net income was up 4 percent on-year for the first half of 2016, while German insurer Allianz reported 2.4 billion euros ($2.69 billion) in operating profit for the second quarter.
To be sure, the British referendum vote to quit the European Union (EU) came only at the tail end of the reporting period for the insurance companies, which suggests earnings for the three months through September 2016 could provide a clearer picture on the impact of the Brexit vote.
Recent reports have also suggested that British Prime Minister Theresa May could soon trigger "Article 50", which will formally begin negotiations for Britain's exit from the EU.
In light of this, for this week's Trader Poll, tell us which insurer will outperform its peers this year.
