FBD reports 2018 results on February 27th, which we expect to provide support against an unjustified de-rating. Despite a positive refinancing of the convertible bond, a greater tilt towards growth and favourable underwriting trends, FBD has underperformed the wider European sector by over 20% since end-H1 2018.

Low investment returns are a challenge, and the ability to offset this by improved underwriting performance may be impacted by Axa’s rural market entry.
