Life assurance yields in 2022 – At an average yield of 2.30%, Assurances du Crédit Mutuel increased the rate offered on its euro funds by one point.

Against the backdrop of a sharp increase in interest rates and inflation, Assurances du Crédit Mutuel remains mindful of supporting its policyholders, and therefore decided to increase the rate offered on its euro funds by one point, across all of its life assurance and individual retirement policies1.

The average rate offered with respect to 2022 therefore was 2.30%2, including the payment bonus3.

The 2022 return on the “Essentiel” policy of the flagship life insurance product, Plan Assurance Vie, was 2.10% , while the return on the product’s “Privilège” policy was 2.25%, excluding any payment bonus3.
The return on the individual retirement savings plan of Assurances du Crédit Mutuel, PER Assurance Retraite, came to 2.25%, excluding any payment bonus3.

After taking payment bonuses3 into account, the yields paid in 2022 on the euro funds were between 2% and 2.75% depending on each insured's situation and policy.

These increases were possible thanks to the investment policy and financial solidity of Assurances du Crédit Mutuel:

- The financial assets underlying our general purpose funds continue to generate overall returns;
- Our payment reserves, built up over several years, are among the highest on the market, at 7.8% of assets under management4.

As the fifth largest life insurer on the French market5, Assurances du Crédit Mutuel manages 4.1 million policies in France on behalf of 2.7 million customers, and had total outstandings of €93 billion6 at the end of December 20227.

The additional return on the euro funds awarded in respect of 2022 was therefore:
  • + 0.25% for contracts that were at least 25% invested in unit-linked funds as at 12/31/2022;
  • + 0.50% for contracts that were at least 50% invested in unit-linked funds as at 12/31/2022.
