An insight into Vicky's working environment at
Munich Re

I am responsible for pricing in both the reinsurance and the primary-insurance branch. For this, I assess business portfolios, group programmes as well as individual single risks. These tasks differ in focus, complexity and granularity. They require different approaches, knowledge and experience as well as the ability to quickly switch mentally from one challenging question to the next at any time.
I get to work on great projects. An idea we pitched in our innovation team has turned into a group project and we’re still involved. Some exciting projects in our Casualty Long-tail Pricing Expert Group are now in implementation. I love the variety.
The corporate culture and global talent pool evoke a fulfilling sense of belonging. When I encounter a tricky issue, I can pick up the phone and call someone who will help or refer me to an expert. It’s amazing how Munich Re encourages these exchanges.
