he recent past has been a stark demonstration that uncertainties and instabilities of all kinds are multiplying.As the threat of new Covid-19 variants continues to loom, entropic forces are running riot on the world stage. Global "re-fragmentation" is ongoing, with a marked acceleration prompted by the war in Ukraine. Economic recovery is threatened by these developments, all the more so as inflationary pressure grows in Europe and the United States. The monetary "tightening" required to keep inflation under control could lead, if badly managed, to financial problems and an economic slowdown. In terms of "acts of God", 2021 was the fifth consecutive year of heavy natural catas-trophe losses. It seems increasingly likely that this is caused, at least in part, by global warming. In the legal and judicial field, the extension of the concept of liability is radically modifying, sometimes retroactively, the nature of certain risks.

In a nutshell, our environment is growing increasingly "stochastic" and volatile.The world is facing ever more violent shocks and increasingly multi-fa-ceted threats. Risks are becoming more interdependent, serial, and global. Furthermore, new risks are emerging and transforming, boosted by scientific progress and technological innovation.

The multiplication of uncertainties and risks is a challenge for reinsurers in general, and for SCOR. But I have confidence in SCOR's ability to pursue its value-creating development.The Group has demonstrated time and again its ability to absorb major shocks of all kinds. Moreover, an ever-riskier world casts no doubt on the relevance of the reinsurance industry, nor on the relevance of its business model. Quite the reverse! It underscores the crucial role of reinsurance which, through its fundamental function of pooling risks, contri-butes to the resilience and the development of societies and economies.

In the very difficult 2021 environment, SCOR managed to deliver a satis-factory retuon equity, strengthen its solvency and deepen its franchise.The Group actively prepared for the transition to the new IFRS 17 accounting standard while pursuing the deployment of new technologies in line with the

The (re)insurance industry benefits from long-term growth drivers: the expansion of the risk universe, the increasing sphere of insurable risks, and the progressive reduction of the protection gap in emerging and industrialized countries. SCOR will actively pursue its development with the twofold target of profitability and solvency, leveraging the depth of its global franchise, its first-class reputation, the richness of its human capital and its command of new

"Adapting and transforming"

How do you plan to position SCOR in the current challenging environment?

- Recent events have been reshaping the world, and our sector, in profound and unexpected ways:

  • 1.We are slowly exiting a prolonged pandemic that has accelerated digitalization and changed customer behavior;

  • 2.Recent years have been marked by sustained natural catastrophes, prompting us to fight climate change more actively;

  • 3.And more recently, the war in Ukraine has reminded us of the resurgence of hard power and the ever-increasing com-plexities of our risk universe, from the geopolitical arena to cyber and macroeconomics.

    While SCOR's strategic cornerstones (robust capital shield, strong franchise, high diversification, and controlled risk appetite) continue to demonstrate their effectiveness, we need to accelerate our adaptation to this environment.We are therefore stepping up our efforts to continue to be financially sustainable and fulfill ourraison d'être, by: fReducing volatility- decreasing our natural catas-trophe exposure in 2022 and building long-term partnerships with traditional retrocessionaires and alter-native sources of capital (e.g., EUR 400 million raised from two large European pension funds);

f

Increasing profitability- re-balancing our P&C port-folio towards non-Cat business lines as the market is hard-ening, accelerating the management actions of our morta-lity book of business in L&H, and de-risking our investment portfolio in line with peers;

fGrowing the franchise- the Group achieved 9.8% gross written premium growth in 2021, with both busi-nesses deepening their franchise globally.

These actions allow us to continue to protect societies from extreme risks, while creating sustainable value for stakeholders and redistributing capital through a EUR 200 million share buyback and a proposed dividend per share of EUR 1.80 for 2021.

SCOR aspires to strengthen its position as a global Tier 1 reinsurer, leading by its understanding of risk and its ability to withstand shocks. SCOR'sraison d'être, and the role of (re)insurers in general, have never been more important. By responding quickly and adapting, we will be among the first to tuthe current headwinds to our advantage. Our leader-ship team and I strongly believe that there are many opportu-nities ahead.

"Our people and their skills are our number one differentiator. Thanks to our teams, we are recognized as an underwriting-driven organization characterized by knowledge and technical expertise."
