Sampo Group's profit before taxes for January - March 2017 increased to EUR 430 million compared to EUR 416 million in the comparison period.
- All our business areas have very favorable solvency development. For instance Mandatum Life reported strongest ever solvency ratio due to higher interest rates and good investment performance.

Outlook for 2017
Sampo Group's business areas are expected to report good operating results for 2017.
However, the mark-to-market results are, particularly in life insurance, highly dependent on capital market developments. The continuing low interest rate level also creates a challenging environment for reinvestment in fixed income instruments.
The P&C insurance operations are expected to reach a combined ratio of 87 - 90 per cent for the full-year 2017.
Nordea's contribution to the Group's profit is expected to be significant.
