We remain the global number one in property-casualty insurance, are among the top five global life and health insurers and defended our position as the world’s most profitable and second largest active asset manager. In an uncertain and volatile business environment, we will protect the pillars of our business strategy – our integrity, financial strength, operational excellence and talent base – and leverage our size to offer outstanding products and ­services to our customers and business partners.
