We are the contact for primary insurers in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy. Furthermore, we are responsible for all non-life primary insurers of the Talanx Group, and we advise industrial companies when they have their own insurance company – a so-called Captive – or if they want to found one.

Business in Germany is carried out by E+S Rück, a subsidiary of Hannover Re. The latter has a 64,8% share in E+S Rück. The company is the second largest reinsurer in the second largest reinsurance market of the world. The remaining shares are held by eight German primary insurers.

What do we do exactly?

With our team of almost 40 employees, we take care of all relevant underwriting tasks. But that is not all – we look after customers, check reinsurance offers, carry out negotiations and prepare contracts. Being close to our clients is very important to us. With client events, specialist "round tables" and other formats, we not only arouse interest in the services of the Hannover Re Group but also share knowledge and thus contribute to the development of the industry. In addition, our analysis department offers actuarial forecasts, business evaluations and medical risk assessments that are incorporated into product and service developments. We operate an extranet for our German customers, giving them access to relevant statistics, contract documents, publications and other helpful information.

What skills do we have?

  • Continuity: we are interested in long term partnerships with our customers. Understanding of the customers’ needs and customer service are extremely important to us.
  • Quality: we are proud of our high standard of quality. E+S Rück was the first reinsurer in Europe to attain the international seal of approval for its management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 and 2008 and has kept it every year since.
  • Innovation: we see new risks arising from new technologies as an opportunity to continue growing even in mature markets.
  • Diversity: The team includes insurance specialists, mathematicians, economists and physicians in order to offer our clients a broad spectrum of know-how and service.
