Key Highlights
2012 saw the top 10 insurers shuffle their rankings, largely due to the fact that several insurers reduced their GWP as opposed to achieving significant growth. Aviva achieved the highest growth rate in 2012 with an increase in GWP of 5.7%, but it remains a long way from knocking DLG off the number one spot.

In 2012 Aviva, the second largest private motor insurer, broke the 100% barrier and delivered a respectable COR of 98.7%. The insurer furthermore improved its loss ratio from 85.3% in 2011 to 79.8% in 2012, while its administration expense ratio is now the lowest among the top 10 insurers.

Co-operative Insurance had a difficult year in 2012, with its COR increasing by 20.1 percentage points on 2011 to an unhealthy 135.7%. This was mainly due to a significant rise in its loss ratio from 95.2% in 2011 to 107.2% in 2012.
