The leading life and health reinsurer in Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific is a major driving force behind Munich Re’s strongly-growing global life and health reinsurance business. Munich Re has achieved a leading position in the Asia Pacific region by acknowledging that profound knowledge and understanding of markets only comes from having excellent local people on the ground. Munich Re has vigorously pursued this principle by decentralising its life and health reinsurance business from its Munich Head Office to Asia Pacific. As a result, Munich Re now has the largest network of any life and health reinsurer in Asia Pacific, with offices in Beijing, Dubai, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne, Mumbai, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Taipei and Tokyo. These offices are equipped with highly-qualified staff and high levels of authority. This strong local presence gives Munich Re unique insight into Asia Pacific markets, enabling Munich Re to offer tailored solutions for a wide variety of needs. Munich Re confirmed its commitment to Asia Pacific with the transformation of the Tokyo office from representative to branch status on 1 July 2010.

This expansion resulted in unparalleled growth, and has established Munich Re as the leading life reinsurer in Asia Pacific. This market share leadership is remarkable given the disciplined underwriting philosophy of Munich Re, and demonstrates the value life insurance companies attach to Munich Re’s superior services and financial security.
