A combination of large claims and losses on investments yielded a deficit of USD 15m for marine insurance company Skuld in the financial year 2021/2022, which ended on Feb. 20. Skuld explains the year’s loss by referring to the negative consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic and an unstable financial market.
