Q2 results were solid, with most items largely in line with our expectations and consensus, while premiums growth surprised positively, beating consensus by 2%. We have increased our 2020–2021e EPS by ~1% following the results and raised our target price to DKK220 (210). We find the valuation increasingly demanding, but acknowledge the market’s appetite for its defensive attributes and steady dividend yield. We struggle to identify any catalysts for the shares and therefore reiterate our HOLD.
The Nordic P&C insurers have seen their share prices appreciate c29% YTD, of which 26%-points stem from multiples expansion.

We reiterate our HOLDs and continue to favour Sampo (HOLD, TP EUR44) as If… is trading at a considerable discount on 2020e P/E at 19x ver...
