Compared to last year, most of the European Union’s insurance companies have grown in the stock market, consequently, their market capitalisation has also continued to grow. This work will not be focused on what’s happens in the insurance market, but will be focused in the realization of the ranking of largest insurance companies in Europe by market cap. As we know, market capitalization refers to the total euro market value of a company’s outstanding shares. Commonly referred to as market cap, it is calculated by multiplying a company’s shares outstanding by the current market price of one share. The investment community uses this figure to determine a company’s size, as opposed to using sales or total asset figures.
The data used in the ranking of insurance companies in Europe by market capitalization have been collected from the main financial sites on 18/02/2020. The market cap is expressed in billions of euros. In the rank are included only the insurance companies for which there were public information about this indicator. Let’s see now the rank of the biggest insurance companies in Europe in 2020.
