   Outlook for 2020 
   Sampo Group's insurance businesses are expected to report good insurance 
technical results for 2020. However, the investment results are at this 
point in time more uncertain than usual. The mark-to-market results for 
2020 are highly dependent on capital market developments, particularly 
in life insurance. 
   If P&C is expected to reach a combined ratio of 82 -- 85 per cent in 
   With regard to Topdanmark, reference is made to the profit forecast 
model that the company publishes on a quarterly basis. 
   Nordea's contribution to the Group's profit is expected to be 
   The major risks and uncertainties for the Group in the near-term 
   In its current day-to-day business activities Sampo Group is exposed to 
various risks and uncertainties, mainly through its separately managed 
major business units. 
   Major risks affecting the Group companies' profitability and its 
variation are market, credit, insurance and operational risks that are 
quantified independently by the major business units. At the group level, 
sources of risks are the same, although they are not directly additive 
due to the effects of diversification. 
   Uncertainties in the form of major unforeseen events may have an 
immediate impact on the Group's profitability. The identification of 
unforeseen events is easier than the estimation of their probabilities, 
timing, and potential outcomes. Currently, the COVID-19 pandemic is 
causing significant negative effects on the Nordic economies. The 
duration of the measures taken to contain the virus and their effects on 
economic and capital market development are uncertain. There are also a 
number of widely identified macroeconomic, political and other sources 
of uncertainty which can, in various ways, affect the financial services 
industry in a negative manner. 
   Other sources of uncertainty are unforeseen structural changes in the 
business environment and already identified trends and potential 
wide-impact events. These external drivers may have a long-term impact 
on how Sampo Group's business will be conducted. Examples of already 
identified trends are technological developments in areas such as 
artificial intelligence and digitalization, demographic changes, and 
sustainability issues that may also have profound effects on companies 
from the financial sector.
