NN Group 2015 Annual Report: Accelerating Change
Today, NN Group published its 2015 Annual Report, an integrated review of the company’s performance, consisting of three sections: Annual Review, Financial Report and Sustainability Supplement. This combined approach to the Annual Report enables NN Group to tailor its reporting to the needs of different stakeholder groups. It provides extensive information on NN Group’s strategy, financial and non-financial performance and future prospects, in a way that reflects the economic, environmental and social contexts in which the company operates.
NN Group showed a strong performance in markets where change is a constant. Going forward, we want to remain responsive, be more agile and accelerate change. As such, innovation is at the core of the company’s strategy for the years to come. Digitalisation, developing products to anticipate new demands and finding additional ways to distribute our products and services are essential to improving the service we offer to our customers and to retain our leading position in the markets in which we operate.
To be a solid and reliable partner for all our stakeholders we aim to maintain a strong balance sheet and solvency position. The NN Group Solvency II ratio was 239% at the end of 2015 after deducting the proposed final 2015 dividend of EUR 341 million. NN Group’s operating units are well capitalised. The Solvency II ratio of NN Life was 216% reflecting a EUR 150 million dividend paid to NN Group in March 2016.
