Definition: Property income attributed to insurance policy holders
Property income attributed to insurance policy holders corresponds to total primary incomes received from the investment of insurance technical reserves. Insurance technical reserves are invested by insurance enterprises and pension funds in financial assets or land (from which net property income, i.e. after deducting any interest paid, is received) or in buildings (which generate net operating surpluses). Any net income received that results from the investment of insurance enterprises’ own funds is to be excluded in proportion to the ratio between own funds and a sum of own funds and insurance technical reserves.
