W&W AG has raised its forecast for 2015.

The consolidated net profit of the Group is now expected to reach a range of 240 and 280 € mn. Former plans predicted a range of 200 and 240 € mn. The upward revision of the forecast is attributable to a further improvement of W&W‘s business modell - resulting into significantly lower costs, and is attributable to the positive development of the stock markets as well as to the favourable claims development in W&W‘s Property/Casualty division.
