Talanx posts record income and disaster losses

March 14, 2022

Germany’s Talanx Group, the parent of reinsurer Hannover Re, has confirmed that its net income reached a record €1,011 million in 2021, thanks mainly to continued growth and optimisation programs in its primary insurance operations.

Notably, gross written premiums saw a double-digit improvement of 10.7% to €45.5 billion in the financial year, with all divisions contributing to this growth.
