FY22 guidance for operating capital generation from the units was raised to around €1.4B from around €1.2B.

Volatility remained as central banks increased interest rates to curb rising inflation and the war in Ukraine continued. Against this challenging backdrop we performed well,” CEO Lard Friese said.
