Morningstar | AIA Group’s 1Q NBV Growth Slowed Smaller Potential in Margin Improvement

No-moat AIA Group’s first-quarter financial highlights reported first-quarter new business value, or NBV, growth of 18% on a constant-currency basis. Such growth was slower than the 20% increase in the year-ago period and tracking in line with our full-year expectation of 15% in 2019. While a negative change in local currencies against U.S. dollars resulted in a lower NBV growth at 14% on an actual-currency basis. Given lack of further disclosure, we retain our HKD 82 per share fair value estimate for AIA. We also maintain our full-year expectation for a 12% growth in embedded value, versus th...

No-moat AIA Group's 2018 results reported a 22% year-on-year growth in new business value, or NBV, beating our expectation for a 15% growth. The strong NBV growth was broad-based, with all major markets delivering double-digit increases.
