APRA welcomes feedback on the new statistics and encourages industry and other stakeholders to review the information that is published for accuracy and consistency, so that the quality of the data collection and publications continues to be enhanced.
The General Insurance Institution-level Statistics publication contains individual insurance group information about financial performance, financial position, capital adequacy and key ratios. The publication also includes financial year-end results for consolidated institutions and Lloyd's Australia.
This is the first edition of the expanded publication. The statistics were expanded to include additional statistics in an improved format, as well as to include half-yearly data on level 2 insurance groups for the first time.
The expanded publication is available in one electronic format: Excel version.
