About us

Life & Health

Our life and health rein­surance busi­ness is adminis­tered by a world­wide network of subsi­diaries, bran­ches and service com­panies. Thanks to our de­centra­lised approach, our em­ployees are avai­lable direct­ly on the spot and are equipped with superb know­ledge of the local (re)­insurance market.

Our experts are usually native speakers closely fami­liar with the region’s culture. This local market know-how com­bined with our world­wide exper­tise en­ables us to deliver indivi­dually tai­lored and compre­hensive cus­tomer support. Hannover Re has dedi­cated itself to lean manage­ment struc­tures and has the lowest adminis­trative expense ratio among major pro­fessional rein­surers.
