Excellent rating for Munich Re's holistic investment strategy

In the current UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Assessment for 2014, Munich Re achieved the top rating of "A+".

Within the relevant comparison group of asset owners, the median rating was "B". Only 16% of the 243 asset owners worldwide that are signatories to the PRI received an "A+" rating. Compared with 2013, Munich Re once again managed to improve its rating.

MEAG CEO and Munich Re Group Asset Manager Dr. Thomas Kabisch had this to say: "We are very pleased with the outstanding result, which reflects our commitment to responsible investment. This is also how we ensure that we can always meet our short- and long-term obligations to our clients in the Group in the best possible way. Our institutional and private clients also benefit from this competence."

Responsible management and investment have had high priority at Munich Re for many years. A holistic investment strategy at MEAG which is geared especially to ESG (environmental, social, governance) criteria also has a positive impact on risk and return in the long term.

This is why we invest in line with the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), which we were involved in developing and became the very first German signatory to the principles in 2006.
