A risk shared is more than a risk halved

Our benefits and services for life and health insurers

Your partner for risks and opportunities in the insurance sector

The value of a reinsurance relationship for life and health insurers increases with the positive value-creation effects of collaboration. Munich Re’s range of services therefore includes far more than classic risk bearing and risk management. 

As a solution partner we follow a holistic approach and are convinced that only the interaction of underwriting and claims handling, medical expertise, capital management, digitization, data analytics and product development which is customised and coordinated to suit your requirements and markets is the key to growth and competitive advantages. 

We therefore offer the entire range of services related to life, disability, critical illness and health insurance. As a package, items combined at your option or individually – the choice is yours. We have developed a number of different cooperation models for this purpose so that you obtain exactly those benefits and services from us that provide the ideal support for your success in the market.
