HanseMerkur is one of Germany’s oldest (since 1875) and most renowned Insurers, and a name synonymous with quality and the highest standards of service and customer satisfaction. We are a house-hold name in Germany and continental Europe but are also a conservative insurer who put our customers and reputation at the front of everything we do, whilst always looking to deliver good quality products and good value for money.
The company is a mutual thus not driven by shareholder greed, and therefore we are relatively conservative when it comes to taking risks. We always consider the medium to long term, seeking out sensible and sustainable business, making us a very stable and reliable insurance partner.
We do not have ambitions to grow rapidly spending a fortune on advertising and sales activities, but rather seek to grow organically and sustainably, never letting our customers down and importantly not siphoning off premiums from one market to aggressively grow in another.
With 2,177 employees and self-employed agency owners working in our head office and in our sales force, the HanseMerkur Insurance Group generated an annual turnover of approximately 2,288.4 million Euros and holds capital assets of more than 9,786.9 million Euros. 10,8 Million Persons are insured through the group.
