Life insurance sales rose 13.8 percent (U.S.13.9 percent); P/C sales increased 3.6 percent, and financial services turned in a strong performance registering overall growth of 36 percent.

The growth came from all sectors, with only p/c sales in the Asia-Pacific Region reporting a downturn. Gross revenue in the period was just under €40 billion ($37 billion) compared to € 31.825 billion ($28.73 billion) in the first half of 1999 – a 28.8 percent increase.
