China Life Insurance to see 45% YoY profit slump – Nomura

China Life is the only insurer Nomura covers that has adopted the transition plan for the new accounting standards (IFRS) for insurance contracts.

China Life Insurance’s 2023 New Business Value (NBV) is forecasted to increase by 12% year-on-year (YoY), according to a Nomura research note.

Nomura also sees the China-based insurer’s net profit to landslide 465% YoY to CNY17.8b in 2023 due to weak investment performance with an annualised return on equity (ROE) decreasing to 4.0$. Total investment yield will likely dip to 2.9%, said the research firm.
