He said: ""Little has changed since the half year.
"The UK car insurance market is cyclical and we are in the softer part of the cycle with premium rates coming down.
"We believe that the sensible strategy in this part of the cycle is to slow our rate of growth.
"As ever, we continue to focus on the quality of our underwriting, on being a low-cost provider of car insurance, giving great service to our customers and on delivering value for our shareholders.
"We remain on track to meet our expectations for the full year."
A spokesman for the business said its financial position remains strong and the firm is on target to meet its expectations for 2012.
