The challenge of demographics

Life expectancy is increasing around the globe – a major challenge for governments, enterprises and life insurers. As a reinsurer, we make future pension obligations estimable.

Actuarial know-how

Not just for natural disasters

In 1982, when quota share arrangements were still the norm, Hannover Re increasingly began to focus on non-proportional business. To this day we continue to invest in building our actuarial know-how so as to ensure a differentiated approach to risk evaluation.

Somewhat different

What sets us apart? We are somewhat different – in approach, in philosophy. In fact, we have been somewhat different ever since our foundation in 1966. And in 2005, we turned our approach into our slogan.
