Achmea Reinsurance

 

We are the competence centre in the field of reinsurance within the Achmea Group. Many of our staff members have more than 15 years of experience in reinsurance. It is our ambition to be the group reinsurer that creates long term financial value for Achmea and contributes to the growth ambitions of Achmea by means of third party reinsurance.

As reinsurance competence centre for the Achmea Group, we have three roles: advisor, risk carrier and reinsurance buyer. We primarily serve Achmea group companies. These are the legal entities Achmea Schadeverzekeringen N.V., Achmea Pensioen- en Levensverzekeringen N.V., N.V. Hagelunie and the non-Dutch operating companies.

As risk carrier we also offer reinsurance to a selected number of third parties to further diversify our book of business and enhance the profitability of Achmea. We are located in Tilburg, the Netherlands.

    Corporate Governance

    On 15 December 2010, the Dutch Association of Insurers (in Dutch: Verbond van Verzekeraars) published its governance principles, also known as the Insurers Code of Conduct.
    The Insurers Code of Conduct sets out principles on corporate governance, risk management, audit and remuneration policy for application by Dutch insurers.
     
    Achmea has chosen to report on the application of the Code of Conduct at Group level because of the structure of its organisation and the Group’s governance. Achmea is aware of the social aspects of its business and the role an insurer plays in society.

     

    Therefore, Achmea fully endorses the Code of Conduct and sees it as an important step in restoring trust in the insurance sector, safeguarding stability and protecting the interests of all parties involved. More details on our compliance with the Code of Conduct are available in the relevant paragraphs in the Insurers Code of Conduct 2014 and in the chapter Governance in Achmea’s annual report.
