MADISON, Wis. (7/31/12)--CUNA Mutual Group posted strong financial results through the second quarter of 2012 due to solid growth in its lending and asset accumulation businesses, the company said Monday.
CUNA Mutual Group recorded $68 million of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) net income through June, compared with $51 million in 2011. GAAP operating revenue grew in the first half of the year by 4.8 %, compared with 2.3% growth last year. This improvement helped offset weather-related losses in the company's auto and home businesses through the second quarter, CUNA Mutual said.
CMFG Life Insurance Co., CUNA Mutual Group's lead life insurance company, grew its statutory total adjusted capital to $1.55 billion through June, up $39 million from year-end 2011. Strong earnings helped to further strengthen the company's capital through the second quarter.
"Despite weather-related losses, we continue to see positive momentum in our core businesses," said Alastair Shore, CUNA Mutual chief financial officer. "We have little control over the weather and economic conditions, but we are executing well on initiatives that are within our control."
