Expert Corporate Governance Service (ECGS)

Tryg, March 15, 2019

Since, as of the date of this report, the names of the candidates put forward by major shareholder TryghedsGruppen smba have not been announced yet, ECGS does not consider Tryg to be in compliance with the Danish regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the AGM. In ECGS' view, this is a significant corporate governance breach and totally unlike best practice. Under ITEM 4, although not legally required in Denmark, the supervisory board and the executive management seek discharge. Under its guidelines, ECGS no longer approves discharge of the board of directors and/or executi...

Tryg (Hold, TP: DKK165.00) - Steady performer

Tryg reported an in-line Q4 with an underlying combined ratio that met our estimates and consensus. The DKK1.65 dividend was also in line with expectations. We have made only minor changes to our estimates and reiterate our HOLD recommendation and DKK165 target price. We find the valuation demanding at this level and struggle to see any significant share price triggers.

Niclas Gehin

Green winter, red investment results

We expect weak investment results for Q4 due to sluggish equity markets and widening credit spreads, resulting in marked-to-market losses, while combined ratios are likely to be broadly flat YOY. We have made only small estimate changes, but have upgraded Sampo to BUY (HOLD) on our view of an excessive implicit If… valuation discount (trading at a 2019e P/E of 12x versus Danish peers at ~18x). Gjensidige remains a BUY and our sector top pick with Sampo, while the valuations of Topdanmark and Tryg still look demanding but we struggle to identify any negative catalysts near-term.

Tryg (Hold, TP: DKK155.00) - Run-offs offset higher large claims

Tryg reported a decent set of Q3 results hurt by high weather and large claims, offset by higher run-off gains. Adjusted for these effects, the combined ratio came in at 85.7%, ~1%-point above consensus of 84.9%. The Q3 underwriting result was particularly weak in Norway with a combined ratio adjusted for run-offs of 98.8%, which was hurt by a single claim for DKK130m. We have made only small changes to our 2019–2020 EPS estimates. We continue to find Tryg’s valuation demanding, but struggle to see any triggers on the downside. We reiterate our HOLD and DKK155 target price.

Niclas Gehin

Fire claims set to continue in Q3

Q3 saw no large weather events such as floods or cloudburst. However, the Norwegian and Danish summer and autumn weather appears to have included a little of everything. We expect some drought claims in the agricultural sector along with claims from storms, forest fire claims in Sweden and heavy rainfall in Norway at the quarter’s end. We expect the investment returns to have been rather solid given the 4% appreciation in the MSCI World in local currencies. We keep Gjensidige (BUY) as our top sector pick, while we see few share price catalysts in the remaining names, which we have at HOLD.

Niclas Gehin

Tryg (Hold, TP: DKK155.00) - Solid premiums growth

Tryg’s Q2 results revealed a solid improvement in premiums growth, and beat our premiums estimate and consensus by ~1.5%. The underlying combined ratio was largely in line with our forecast and consensus, while high run-off gains were broadly offset by a weak investment return due to widening credit spreads. We have raised our 2019–2020e EPS by 1%, mainly due to the beat on premiums growth. We keep our HOLD recommendation and DKK155 target price.

Int'l Insights: Bullish Stocks

Concerns over perceived central bank policy missteps have been somewhat alleviated following dovish takeaways from Fed Chair Powell's comments, proclaiming interest rates are “just below” the neutral rate, and reminding everyone that future rate hikes are not predetermined. While this is certainly an incrementally positive development, it does not completely remove the specter of future rate hikes from our list of concerns. Of course, trade remains an issue despite optimism surrounding the Trump/Xi meeting at the G20 summit this week. Therefore, our outlook remains cautious and we expect conso...
