Berlin - AFP

German insurance giant Allianz said Friday that its second-quarter net profit fell seven percent to 1.07 billion euros ($1.5 billion) after a large charge on the value of its Greek bond holdings. Allianz\' operating profit was stable compared with the same period a year earlier, at 2.3 billion euros, topping analyst forecasts for 2.14 billion euros as compiled by Dow Jones Newswires. Sales declined as expected meanwhile, losing 3.2 percent to 24.6 billion euros, a statement said. Allianz said that it had reduced the value of its Greek bond holdings to their current market value which entailed booking a charge of 644 million euros. Some of that amount was charged to clients and the group also got a tax rebate on the loss, leaving the impact on its net result at 326 million euros. Allianz chief executive Michael Diekmann said in the statement that \"these are very satisfying results.\" He said the second quarter and first half figures were \"remarkably solid considering the high level of natural catastrophe events, the uncertainty of the capital markets, currency fluctuations and, last but not least, the current impairment of our Greek sovereign bond portfolio.\" Diekmann said that despite the insurer\'s second quarter losses, Allianz would meet its 2011 operating profit target of eight billion euros, plus or minus 500 million euros. German re-insurance giant Munich Re has also written down the value of its Greek bond holdings but insurers and banks in the country have not said to what extent they plan to participate in a second Greek rescue package backed by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund. Part of the programme calls for private investors to either voluntarily extend the maturity of their bonds or sell them back at a discounted rate, taking a loss estimated at some 21 percent. On Thursday, the European Central Bank resumed purchases of sovereign bonds issued by heavily indebted eurozone countries but the intervention failed to stop a massive sell off of stocks in Frankfurt and on other global markets.
