The IGIH said its gross written premium rose 11.2 per cent in 2012 to $225.5 million compared to $202.8 million a year ago. The net underwriting profit grew to $36.8 million for 2012, thus registering an increase of 9.4 per cent from $33.6 million the previous year. This represents 24.8 per cent of the gross premium earned for the year against 28.2 per cent for 2011.

Commenting on the results, Wasef Jabsheh, the vice chairman and CEO said, “Again, I am very pleased to announce record earnings for 2012. Although our investment income came in below budget due to the prevailing investment environment, we still managed to exceed our net income forecasts due to our stellar underwriting results.” \"Last month we had introduced our new business line, political violence, as part of our growth plans,\" stated Jabsheh while addressing the shareholder at the company\'s Annual General Meeting. \"As in previous years, we continue to look for new market opportunities whilst continuing our expansion goals in our Mena, UK, and Asian offices.
