Al-Buhaira National Insurance Co. (ABNIC) succeeded in achieving healthy technical results for the period ending 30/6/2017, due to the implementation of recent motor tariffs in line with Insurance Authority instructions which improved premium earned v/s claims incurred. This, coupled with stricter policy in renewing medical schemes that revealed poor performance, contributed positively to maintain decent underwriting profits.
