New Market Research Report: Reinsurance in Germany, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Sep 03 2013

The German reinsurance segment registered varying growth in terms of reinsurance ceded during the review period. The segment comprises two of the world's leading reinsurers, Munich Re and Hannover Re, and both registered profit in the first quarter of 2013. However, the investment performance of Munich Re declined in the first quarter of 2013 as compared to 2012 due to a decline in interest income and investment growth in unit-linked life insurance products. The implementation of liberalization policies opened up the segment to international reinsurers and brokers. German reinsurance is affected by demand trends in the industry and the development of its capital base, which also determines the available capacity.
