Truist Insurance Holdings’ organic growth down sharply


Truist Insurance Holdings’ organic revenue growth dropped to 2.1% in the second quarter from 11.6% in year-earlier period, parent company Truist Financial Corp. reported Thursday.

However, total revenue, for the unit formerly known as BB&T Insurance Holdings rose 4.4% to a record $621 million, from $595 in the year-earlier period. Net interest income slid 0.8% to $23 million, from $25 million in last year’s second quarter.

Noninterest income climbed 4.9% to $598 million, from $570 million, and net segment income grew 12.6% to $125 million, from $111 million in the prior-year period.

Net acquired income dropped to just $4 million for the quarter from $34 million in the year-earlier period, and new business was down 4% “due to COVID-related impacts,” Truist Financial said.

Second-quarter results benefited from “continued property/casualty price increases and better-than-anticipated exposure units,” it said.

Truist Financial reported results for the insurance unit, one of the company’s three publicly reported businesses,  during a second-quarter earnings call.

SunTrust Banks Inc. and BB&T Corp. merged in 2019 to become Truist Financial.
