Munich Re - Munich Reinsurance Company
Münchener Rückversicherungs-Gesellschaft

Munich Re - Munich Reinsurance CompanyOur business model is based on the combination of primary insurance and reinsurance. We take on risks of every type and complexity on a worldwide scale.

Munich Re stands for exceptional solution-based expertise, consistent risk management, financial stability and client proximity. In the financial year 2016, the Munich Re Group achieved a profit of €2.6bn on premium income of €48.9bn*. It operates in all lines of insurance, with more than 43,000 employees throughout the world.

Risk management is our strength

Life insurance is one of the most dynamic and challenging lines of business, with medical progress, demographic trends and changing lifestyles constantly reshaping the risk landscape. This is compounded by strict laws and regulations, stiff competition and low interest rates.

As a global reinsurer with vast experience, Munich Re is equipped to support primary insurers in continually refining their business models and deployment of capital in response. We work with each client to develop customised and future-oriented solutions.

Based on extensive risk expertise and local insights, we support our clients' profitable growth. This commitment is at the heart of Munich Re's activities in Austria and our sponsorship of the European Actuarial Journal Conference. With our actuarial risk management know-how, tools and capacity, we develop early-warning systems and tailored solutions. Our integrated functions of actuarial calculation, underwriting and claims management give clients a 360° view of risks.

Sparkassen Versicherung AG
Vienna Insurance Group

Sparkassen Versicherung AG - Vienna Insurance Group Sparkassen Versicherung AG Vienna Insurance Group (s Versicherung) was formed in 1985 by the Austrian Sparkasse Group and began operations on 2/1/1986. s Versicherung specialises in private and business pension plans and risk insurance in the form of life, accident and pension insurance, as well as custom-tailored packages for household, homeowners and building shell insurance.

Today, s Versicherung is a leader in Austrian life insurance and the most successful bank insurance company. s Versicherung became part of Vienna Insurance Group (VIG) in 2008, when Erste Group sold VIG 95% of its shares in s Versicherung. Regardless of this, s Versicherung remains the sole and exclusive insurance partner of the Sparkassen Group. Thanks to the change in ownership, s Versicherung now belongs to the largest, most successful insurance group in Austria as well as Central and Eastern Europe.

This exclusive cooperation between the largest insurance group and largest banking group generates valuable synergies that are of particular benefit to customers in the form of better support, service and products.

The success of this strategy can be seen in the company's business performance. After it had been the market leader in Austria from 2001 to 2005, s Versicherung once again became number one in 2012 and has successfully defended this position in subsequent years. s Versicherung's stated goal is to continue this successful cooperation with the Sparkasse Group.
