Our strategic objective is to increase the investment made by our shareholders on a sustained basis. In this context we take as our benchmark the Global Reinsurance Index (GloRe), which we aim to outperform over a rolling three-year period.

The Global Reinsurance (R/I) Index was established retroactively as at 31 July 2007 and is with effect from 1 January 2012 Hannover Re's benchmark.

The index is calculated as a performance index (reinvestment of dividends) and as price index (no reinvestment of dividends).

The Global R/I Index was selected quite deliberately as the benchmark for our internal performance measurement. The concept complies with all rules and usages for calculating indices. As a global reinsurer – with more than 80% of our premium income deriving from foreign markets and an international investor structure –, we measure our success by the share performance of all listed competitors worldwide. Thus the index comprises the 10 largest listed companies which at least write one third reinsurance premium.
