2015 SuStainability report
CEO Message 04
In 2015, based on our business principle to
“establish sound management through change,
innovation and action”, we will lay a strong
foundation to make a new leap forward to
become a global insurer.
Dear stakeholders,
First of all, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your kind interest and cordial support rendered
to us during the years to date. This Sustainability Report includes trustworthy information regarding
our general business status in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative G4 Guideline. It has been five years
since we first published our Sustainability Report, and through this fifth Sustainability Report, I am delighted
to share with you our company’s updates on overall business status during last year.
Looking back on 2014, Korean economy underwent uneasy situation due to economic slowdown in developed
countries, with the exception of the US market, on top of the increasing economic uncertainties stemming
from emerging markets such as China and Russia. Despite these hardships, SFMI achieved net profit of
KRW 838.2 billion based on our management principle of ‘profitable growth’ that we believe is to enhance
overall corporate value and hence beneficial to our stakeholders as well. Also, we consistently maintained
our RBC (Risk-based Capital) ratio, a key measure for financial stability of insurance companies,
up to 375% - the highest level in the industry.
Reflecting sound evaluation from investors and financial communities, our share price marked its highest
record, and A.M. Best Company, a world-renowned credit rating agency for insurance companies, rated
our company the highest rating, A++, for four consecutive years. At the same time SFMI has become a valued
member of the leading sustainability indices across the globe such as DJSI World and FTSE4Good of
the London Stock Exchange.
In 2015, we will devote us to lay a solid foundation to jump up to be a global insurance company,
based on the management philosophy of “Change; Innovation; and Implementation.”
In order for us to reach this goal, our immediate next steps are as follows:
First, we will further strengthen our customer-oriented business and expand our customer base.
Second, we will continue our efforts toward efficient work processes and consolidate the company’s profitability.
Third, we will explore future growth opportunities in Korean health insurance market, and gradually expand
into overseas markets as a way of securing our new future growth engines.
I look forward to your continued interest in our company and in our journey to leap forward as a global insurance
company in the near future, and I hope all the best wishes for you and your families.
Thank you very much.
Sincerely yours,
June 2015

Step 2, prioritizing: Materiality Test is conducted for the identified issues based on the SFMI’s significance of
economic, environmental, and social impacts and influence on stakeholder assessment and decisions. Opinions
of our employees and of external experts were reflected when assessing the significance of economic,
environmental, and social impacts, and analyses of press releases and survey results were reflected in
assessing social impacts and influence on stakeholder.
Step 3, Review & Approval: The issues are internally reviewed and approved by the Sustainability Management
Committee. We have made utmost efforts to cover all the material issues in this Sustainability Report.

18Corporate Governance2 - ECOnOMy
Qualification: Outside directors with expertise in the field of finance, economics, business management,
accounting and media are recommended by the committee and elected during the General Meeting of
the Shareholders based on both objective and subjective qualifications as required by the law including
professionalism, job ethics, responsibility and integrity. As stated in the commercial law, outside directors are
restricted from holding more than two external positions in either stock-listed or private companies, and SFMI
is abiding to those rules. Non-executive directors, Mr. Dong yeop Shin and Mr. Byeong Jo Son are currently
appointed as directors in another company, however risk from conflict of interest is deemed low.
term: The initial term of both the executive and non-executive directors is no more than 3 years while reappointment is allowed. However, non-executive directors’ re-appointment term is restricted to no more than
5 years. The term of inside directors is longer to encourage responsible management and eliminate pursuit of
short term profit, while term assigned to outside directors is shorter to ensure check system.
Job Evaluation: Evaluation of the directors is conducted annually at fiscal year-end by the BOD, directors
themselves and the Secretariat of BOD. The evaluation is based on directors’ activities including attendance
rate at the BOD and the Committee meetings, business knowledge, fairness, professionalism as well as overall
contribution to the company and shareholders.
Evaluation and Remuneration Framework: Management’s performance evaluation and remuneration criteria is
set based on sustainability values such as long term performance, profitability and soundness. Majority of the
total compensation payable to senior management is composed of variable payments and is determined based
on performance evaluation. The variable compensation is paid over 3 years. Substantial portion of the variable
remuneration is linked to long term performance and while the first year remuneration is paid in cash, 2nd-3rd
year compensation is paid in form of equity linked products.

Setting/Assessment of internal Control Criteria
Internal compliance regulation was established as set forth by the Insurance Business Act and all employees
are expected to comply with the regulations. The regulations express our commitment to abide by the
laws, maintain sound asset management and protect our insured customers. Internal control policy sets
out guidelines on employee role and responsibilities, compliance system, internal control structure, code of
conduct, key issue by job functions and compliance check.
Operating System of internal Control: The compliance officer is responsible for the operation of internal control
system and related guidelines. The officer also nominates compliance officers by individual departments to
monitor the status of compliance and identify weaknesses to the system. Violation of compliance leads to
disciplinary actions. The compliance officer evaluates the appropriateness of compliance and reports the
results to be reviewed and approved by the Audit committee before reporting to the BOD.

Management of
Capital Adequacy
SFMI maintains the highest capital adequacy within Korean non-life insurance industry. We have formulated
an internal capital solvency calculation method based on global Solvency II standard, to determine our capital
adequacy and set internal risk tolerance level.
Regulatory capital solvency requirements: Solvency ratio of an insurance company refers to capital available in
addition to capital required for insurance companies to pay back to policyholders (required capital). As of December 2014, SFMI’s RBC ratio stood at 375%, well exceeding the 100% level required by the Financial Supervisory Services.
internal capital solvency requirements and risk tolerance limit: To implement a more effective risk management framework, we measure our internal solvency ratio based on Solvency II standards. Our Risk Management Committee monitors risk tolerance level and adequacy of the limit on a regular basis.
Stress test and sensitivity analysis: SFMI conducts annual stress test based on the IMF bailout and 2008 global
financial crisis scenarios, as set by the regulators. The results of the test are reported to the Risk Management
Committee. Based on our recent stress test, our solvency ratio was at 200%, an adequate level even when applied the economic crisis scenario. We also perform market fluctuation sensitivity analysis to measure risks that
may lead to profit and asset losses.
* IMF crisis scenario: 30% increase in interest rate, 40% decline in stock prices, 50% decline in exchange rates, 100% increase in bankruptcy rate, etc.

In Fy 2014, uncertainties over the global financial markets have continued owing to delayed economic
recovery of developing countries and concern with drop of oil price. While the local economy, entering into a
new-normal period marked with low growth and low interest rate, continued to experience weak domestic
demand. Despite this challenging environment, SFMI achieved solid business results by promoting high profit
and solid growth. Direct premiums written rose to KRW 17.4 trillion, 1.8% more than the previous year, while
net profit rose to KRW 796.6 billion, 12.4% more by dint of improved portfolio mix and differentiated profit
management throughout all business lines. RBC ratio which shows the financial soundness of an insurer
recorded the industry’s highest level of 375.1%. SFMI also received an “A+ Positive” rating from global credit
rating agency S&P and an “A++ (Superior)” from A.M.Best, demonstrating its high creditability and world’s top
class financial soundness.
profit & Loss Summary
Direct premiums written and net premiums earned rose 1.8% and 2.0% respectively compared to the previous
year recording KRW 17.3 trillion and 16.6 trillion each.
Underwriting profit posted a loss of KRW 592.5 billion due to concentrated large amount incidents of
commercial insurance and a deteriorated loss ratio of auto insurance and higher risk loss ratio of long-term
insurance from additional IBNR reserves. Despite decline of yield on interest-bearing assets such as bonds and
loans because of low interest rate environment, investment profit rose by 12.4% to KRW 1,682.8 billion as a
result of stable growth in invested asset.
Net profit in Fy 2014 increased by 12.4% to KRW 796.6 billion, with cash dividends standing at KRW 4,500 per
share. Based on the industry’s leading capital position, SFMI plans to concentrate on maintaining the stability
and efficiency of capital and enhancing shareholder value in the long term.

Results by business Line
Overall direct premiums written rose 1.8% to KRW 17.4 trillion.
Commercial insurance premium rose 1.0% to KRW 1,543.6 billion. This was the result of strengthened
underwriting for low margin contracts according to strategic change towards profit-driven growth. On the
other hand, net premiums earned, which is the actual base of income, showed stable growth of 12.2% since
the company improved its retention rate for profitable accounts.
Long-term insurance premium rose 1.1% to KRW 12,018.2 billion. Overall growth rate of long-term insurance
has been decreased compared to the past year’s numbers. This is because new contracts for savingstype products including lump-sum premium sharply dropped following the company’s strategy pursuing
substantial growth on protection-type products since 2013. However, the company’s portfolio of new premium
and recurring premium, focused on highly profitable protection-type products significantly improved resulting
in steady growth of the new business EV margin.
Auto insurance premium rose 4.6% to KRW 3,796.3 billion despite the company’s underwriting policy centered
on good contracts, and an increase of online contracts with low premiums. This was the result of premium hike
for certain types of automobiles as well as increased sales of new vehicles.

Despite improved expense ratio, total combined ratio rose by 0.3%p to 103.4% as the loss ratio worsened

Loss ratio of commercial insurance recorded 62.9%, up by 3.5%p year on year as there occurred a number of

Overall loss ratio of long-term insurance recorded 88.4%, up 0.6%p from the previous year. Risk loss ratio,
which is an effective underwriting indicator, rose by 4.1%p to 77.9%. This was mainly due to additional
reserves from the regulation changes in IBNR.
Loss ratio of auto insurance recorded 83.0%, down 3.5%p from the previous year. Despite the fact that
premium per policy has decreased due to growth in discounted online, the accident rate also declined mainly

Investment income rose 12.4% year on year to KRW 1,682.8 billion. This rise is mainly attributable to
an increase of interest income from bonds and loans, which accounts for 78% of the invested assets,
by KRW 96.3 billion and 35.7 billion respectively Investment profit from equities also showed a sizable
improvement of KRW 76.5 billion, as there were less impairment losses and more dividend income
incurred this year. Investment yield fell by 0.1%p to 3.8% due to fall in yield on interest-bearing assets
affected by the continued low interest rate environment.
Expense ratio in Fy 2014 recorded 17.9%, down 0.1%p year on year. This is mainly because distribution costs
improved by 0.8%p since there was no additional amortization of acquisition cost which was incurred in
Fy2013. On the other hand, wage & severance benefits and administration costs increased by 0.2%p, 0.4%p
respectively as a result of expanding investment on key personnel and infrastructure aiming to strengthen the

in regard to the following aspects of Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance Sustainability Report 2015 (the “Report”).
695 - AppEnDix independent Assurance Statement
inherent limitations Non-financial performance information is subject to more inherent limitations than financial information, given the characteristics of
the subject matter and the methods used for determining such information. Qualitative interpretations of relevance, materiality and
the accuracy of data are subject to individual assumptions and judgments.
A limited assurance engagement is less in scope than a reasonable assurance engagement under ISAE 3000. Consequently,
the nature, timing and extent of procedures for gathering sufficient, appropriate evidence are deliberately limited relative to a
reasonable assurance engagement.
In particular:
 We did not attend any stakeholder-engaged activities. Therefore our conclusion is based on our discussions with the
management and the staff of the Company and our review of sampled documents provided to us by the Company.
 The scope of our work was restricted to 2014 performance only, as set out in the scope and subject matter section above.
Information related to the year ended December 31, 2013 and earlier periods have not been subject to assurance by us.
Conclusion Based on the results of the assurance work performed, our conclusion is as follows.
 On the AA1000APS principles
- Inclusivity · The Company has collected concerns and opinion through stakeholder communication channels that
include those of Customers, Partners, Investors, Communities and Employees.
· Nothing has come to our attention to suggest that material stakeholder groups were excluded from these
- Materiality · The Company has identified most relevant and significant sustainability issues through process for
identifying material issues.
· Nothing has come to our attention to suggest that material issues were omitted in this process.
- Responsiveness · The Company has included in the Report its response to the material sustainability issues which are defined
through process for identifying material issues.
· Nothing has come to our attention to suggest that there were material deficiencies in the issue
management system.
 Nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the Sustainability Data for the year ended December 31,
2014 is not fairly stated, in all material respects, in accordance with the Company’s internal reporting principles set out on GRI
(Global Reporting Initiative) G4 guideline with core option.
Recommendations As a result of our work, we have provided the following recommendations to the management.
 It is recommended to improve global data management process in accordance with G4 guideline, in order to collect and manage
corporate-wide Sustainability Data.
 It is recommended to manage key performance indicators with wider scope which are aligned with performance evaluation of
each part of the Company in order to effectively implement sustainability strategy and address sustainability issues corporatewide.
 In order to ensure the consistency of disclosed data, it is necessary to improve the data collection and management process of
internal control system.
