Insurer Aksigorta, a 36-36 JV between one Turkey's largest conglomerates Sabanci Holding and Ageas Insurance International N.V., increased its net profit by a strong 228% y/y to TRY 159.8mn (EUR 53mn) in 2013 from a net profit of TRY 48.7mn in 2012.

The insurer increased its premium generation by 16% y/y to TRY 1.5bn in 2013. The company's premium revenues had increased by 15.4% y/y to TRY 1.3bn in 2012 from TRY 1.14bn in 2011.

In September 2013, Dincer said that a consolidation in the Turkish insurance sector seemed inevitable and Aksigorta was interested in acquisition opportunities.

Aksigorta expected a 12-16% increase in premiums while its profit growth forecast was 20-30% for 2013, the general manager Ugur Gulen said also in September last year.
