Claims managers deliver on our promise

    alt txt



    Are you looking to make a difference and challenge yourself? Managing claims is about more than settling. It’s laying the groundwork for rebuilding after disaster strikes. 

    Making the world of risks manageable

    Natural disasters, blackouts, rocket false starts, construction defects - as insurers and reinsurers, we cannot prevent these and other catastrophes for our clients, but we can ensure that restoration can begin immediately after a loss. Our claims managers play a critical role in this process and have to perform a variety of tasks as well as meet diverse needs. They are the ones who coordinate and mediate between the interests of all parties involved in a claim.

    Claiming demands experience, communication skills & empathy

    Our Claims Manager are promoting Munich Re in various projects.

    Conscientious examination & skillful negotiation

    A key task of our Claims department is to protect Munich Re's balance sheet. Therefore, during a claims settlement, they check, among other things, whether measures can be taken to mitigate losses in a way that benefits all parties involved - our clients and, where appropriate, injured individuals or companies. Claims managers assess our exposure and also set up appropriate provisions for catastrophic events.

    Current topics from Munich Re in the area of risks

    Hailstorms with large hailstones can cause extreme damage, especially when they hit conurbations. Such severe hailstorms in particular will increase significantly in Europe long term if climate change is not consistently curbed. This is the conclusion of a new study by Munich Re in cooperation with the European Severe Storms Laboratory (ESSL). 
    Driving assistance systems already make it possible to use largely automated vehicles in road traffic. Therefore it should only be a matter of time before fully automated vehicles are also ready for series production. How does this affect liability for damages in car accidents?
    The topic of artificial intelligence (AI) fascinates many people. Therefore, media coverage and public discussion are intense. Even though development is still in its early stages and there are only a few ways of using it in everyday life, the possibility of using AI already raises a number of questions. For example: Who is liable if AI causes harm to third parties? Will the use of AI lead to changes in liability law? And last but not least: What are the implications for the insurance needs of those involved?
