The Allstate Corporation has made a huge turnaround, reporting $1.2 billion in net income applicable to common shareholders in the first quarter of 2024 following last year’s Q1 net loss of $346 million.

Here are some of the highlights from Allstate’s latest set of financial results:

$(346 million)

The bounceback in net income was mainly attributed to the improved property-liability underwriting numbers in the period.

Commenting on the insurer’s quarterly performance, chair, president, and chief executive Tom Wilson (pictured) said: “Allstate’s broad-based profitability reflects the benefits of strong operating capabilities, decisive actions to improve shareholder value, and lower catastrophe losses.

“Auto profitability was enhanced as a growing number of states achieved targeted margin levels in the quarter. Industry-leading home insurance capabilities, when combined with lower catastrophe losses, further improved profitability.

“Investment income increased primarily due to higher yields and extension of fixed-income maturities over the last 18 months. Revenues reached $15.3 billion for the quarter, increasing 10.7% compared to the prior year. Net income was $1.2 billion with adjusted net income of $5.13 per diluted common share.”

The CEO added: “Allstate’s strategy, operational expertise, people, and financial strength will enable us to continue creating value for customers and shareholders.”
