De Smet : "Technique is one of the most important fundamentals of parkour. Really getting to know how your body is reacting to a certain situation, which you can improve by using technique, and practicing technique to the point where all your movement is just second nature. You don't have to think so much about what you're doing, it just happens from muscle memory. Technique is also a really good thing to work on in terms of safety as well, it keeps you safe if you know exactly how your body is going to react to a certain situation. Being able to trust yourself and trust what you can do" External link

De Smet said : "Ageas delivered a strong set of first half-year figures evidencing good progress with respect to our Ambition 2018 strategic plan. Life inflows continued to grow while at the same time we optimised the product mix in Belgium and Asia. The result of our Life activities remained strong in all segments. The Non-Life businesses in Belgium and Continental Europe realised excellent results which were reflected in outstanding combined ratios. In the UK we continued to closely monitor the plans to strengthen the business in response to among others the impact of the recent Ogden rate adjustment. The group's financial position remained solid with a solvency ratio well above our target as a result of a healthy operational free capital generation and favourable market conditions. In this context, the Ageas Board of Directors has decided to continue the buy-back of shares by launching a new programme of EUR 200 million. In the past 6 years we have bought back an equivalent of 22% of the shares outstanding, which has led to a 28% increase of our earnings and dividends per share" External link

De Smet said ( about Hong ) : "The first half of this year was marked by the announced settlement agreement related to the civil Fortis legacies in the first quarter, the closing of the sale of our Hong Kong activities and the acquisition of Ageas Seguros in Portugal. Since the initial announcement, the settlement has attracted further support from other parties which is a positive development in the process towards achieving a binding declaration from the Court of Amsterdam which we hope to obtain by mid 2017. As we look more broadly at our Insurance activities, the Asian and Belgian Life business were the key drivers of the growth of inflows during the first half of 2016. This first half net insurance result, including the capital gain related to the Hong Kong divestment, was the best so far for Ageas. Excluding all exceptional events, our operating performance is improving and remains in line with our ambitions. The operational result combined with our solid cash position and very stable and strong solvency level give us the comfort to launch a new buy-back programme of EUR 250 million" External link
