According to BB Seguridade, even with the good performance of the distribution sector, especially BB Corretora, the exacerbation of the Covid-19 pandemic and the volatility of the financial result negatively affected the result of the other lines.
Brasilprev showed a decline of R$171 million in profit, due to the negative financial result, driven by the discrepancy in inflation rates that updated most assets (IPCA and IGP-M for the current period) and liabilities (largely updated by IGP-M with average lag 1 month) in defined benefit plans.
Brasilseg’s profit has already fallen below R$100.1 million due to the worsening sanitation crisis in the country. The loss ratio increased by 19.7 percentage points.

Written premiums were R$3.1 billion in the first quarter, representing a growth of 22.2% year-on-year. Rural insurance was the most prominent in this period, growing by 32% compared to the second quarter of 2020, with development in all areas of the business due to the increase in credit to finance the 2021/2022 harvest.
The commission rate fell 2.6 percentage points year on year. General and administrative expenses decreased, with the index improving by 4.2 percentage points mainly due to a reversal of the Rural Insurance Stabilization Fund payment allocation of R$43.9 million.
