AIA Sri Lanka reported a consolidated loss after tax of Rs.2 million for the three months ended 31 March 2015, compared with consolidated profit after tax of Rs.78 million in the corresponding period in 2014.

Meanwhile, the group’s consolidated revenue increased by 2 percent to Rs.3,268 million, with solid growth of 14 percent in Gross Written Premium (GWP) amounting to Rs.2,949 million offset by lower investment income.

Further, GWP from conventional life business, which is a key strategic focus, grew by 14 percent to Rs.1,528 million and contributed 84 percent of the overall life GWP and the overall life GWP was Rs.1,817 million, up 4 percent.

General insurance GWP increased by 35 percent to Rs.1,132 million, driven by strong growth in agency.
