Declaration of compliance with the German Code of Corporate Governance

2004/12/10

Group

As from 2005, Munich Re will comply with all the recommendations of the German Code of Corporate Governance with one exception: it will not be disclosing the compensation of the members of its Board of Management individually because it does not consider such disclosure to be appropriate. In its annual report for 2004, the Board of Management's compensation structure will, however, be presented and broken down in more detail than hitherto, including disclosure of figures such as those for pension commitments.

Dr. Nikolaus von Bomhard, Chairman of the Board of Management: "We are thus satisfying investors' and shareholders' interest in transparency. For their investment decisions, they should be in a position to assess the relationship between the Board of Management's performance and compensation. They consequently require and receive from us detailed information on the Board as a collegial body."

The information on the compensation structure, which can already be viewed as from today on Munich Re's website, is appended in the attachment; the annual report for 2004 will be published on 15 March 2005.
