Management report

Enterprise management

Within the Talanx Group we have set ourselves the following core tasks, which must be fulfilled on a sustained basis: providing reliable support for our customers, maintaining sufficient independent capacity in all market phases, cultivating new markets and safeguarding as well as increasing the intrinsic value of the Group for stakeholders for the long term. At the same time, the extent of the requirements placed on insurance groups by the regulatory environment and by capital markets and rating agencies is growing. The point of departure determined by these internal and external influencing factors causes us to define the following goals:

  • Increase profitability and create value
  • Make optimal use of capital
  • Optimize the cost of capital
  • Invest in areas where we generate the highest risk-adjusted return over the long term
  • Seize strategic opportunities and at the same time remain aware of and manage the immanent risks

We pursue these goals with the aid of our holistic, integrated management system, in which we devote special attention to the four fundamental management processes that govern the interplay between the holding company Talanx AG and the Group’s various divisions: capital management, performance management, risk management and mergers & acquisitions (M&A).
