Pre-tax profits for the year ending December 2014 stand at £357 million.

Admiral Group’s 2014 was the year of the Baked Alaska - hot and cold in a single bite.

The hot? Profits emerging from our international insurance businesses, in ConTe in Italy, and record profits at Rastreator and LeLynx, our price comparison businesses in Spain and France, respectively.

The cold? For the first time since we went public, Admiral Group did not post a record profit, but we still made a lot of money, had an enviable 52% return on equity and distributed 95% of our after-tax profits to our shareholders.

– Henry Engelhardt, Group Chief Executive Officer
