ERGO Versicherungsgruppe AG Key Developments

Ergo Versicherungsgruppe AG Announces Management Changes

Torsten Oletzky, Chairman of the Board of Management of ERGO Versicherungsgruppe AG (ERGO), is leaving ERGO's Board at his own request, for personal reasons and by amicable agreement at the end of 31 December 2015. He was appointed to ERGO's Board of Management in 2004 and became Chairman of the Board in 2008. ERGO and Munich Re are at an advanced level of talks with Markus Rie (49), who currently chairs the Board of Management of Allianz Deutschland AG. Subject to approval by the Supervisory Boards of both ERGO and Munich Re (the respective meetings will be held on 9 June), Rie is to succeed Oletzky as Chairman of ERGO's Board of Management with effect from 1 October 2015. His appointment to Munich Re's Board of Management is planned for the same date.

Ergo Reports Earnings Results for the Year 2014

Ergo reported earnings results for the year 2014. The company posted €5.5 million in annual profits in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, up from a mere €0.01 million in 2013. Insurance premiums written in the three Baltic countries rose by 5% year-on-year to €163 million. The group paid out more than €82 million in claims to its Baltic customers.

ERGO Insurance Launches New Betriebs-Rente Garantie Scheme

ERGO Insurance Group has launched ERGO Betriebs-Rente Garantie, or ERGO Company Annuity Guarantee, which provides proven security in terms of payment of premiums and good earnings potential in all periods of interest. Special features include supplementary cover against occupational disability without having to underg o a health assessment. The same premium applies for all job categories. Company pension schemes are an important cornerstone of old-age provision in Germany. The new product makes it easy for companies to implement this right with little effort. The features of the new product include: dynamic investment concept; flexible premiums; variable pension start date; simple switch; new annuity rate concept; range of extension options; and innovative disability cover. The new direct insurance features a balanced mix of guaranteed payments with earnings potential. Customers can benefit from rising interest rates more quickly than with classic direct insurance. The investment concept corresponds to the private annuity insurance 'ERGO Rente Garantie' which was brought onto the market in July 2013. If there is a change in the employee's income or circumstances, the monthly premium can either be increased or reduced. One-off payments such as bonuses or a Christmas handout can also be paid into the ERGO Company Annuity Guarantee - over and above the monthly premium. With the new product, employees can draw a pension once they reach 62 or stay in work until they are 70. This can either be declared as a contributory or non-contributory period.
