Beyond pure risk transfer
About Munich Re
Munich Re stands for exceptional solution-based expertise, consistent risk management, financial stability and client proximity. This is how Munich Re creates value for clients, shareholders and staff. In the financial year 2016, the Group – which combines primary insurance and reinsurance under one roof – achieved a profit of €2.6bn. It operates in all lines of insurance, with over 43,000 employees throughout the world. With premium income of around €28bn from reinsurance alone, it is one of the world’s leading reinsurers. Especially when clients require solutions for complex risks, Munich Re is a much sought-after risk carrier. Its primary insurance operations are concentrated mainly in ERGO, one of the leading insurance groups in Germany and Europe. ERGO is represented in over 30 countries worldwide and offers a comprehensive range of insurances, provision products and services. In 2016, ERGO posted premium income of €16.0bn. Munich Re’s global investments (excluding insurance-related investments) amounting to €219bn are managed by MEAG, which also makes its competence available to private and institutional investors outside the Group.

Beyond the ordinary

We believe reinsurance can do more for our clients. Our globally connected, agile Deal Teams are dedicated to making sure that it does. They work closely with clients to jointly develop and structure unconventional risk transfer solutions around them. The results are highly flexible, turnkey packages that optimise capital management and support the meeting of solvency requirements. Typically, solutions include structured prospective and retroactive reinsurance, as well as alternative risk transfer instruments like cat bonds and derivatives. Our agile approach has been repeatedly tried, tested and confirmed by our clients and we stand ready to develop similar solutions for you.
