Industrial Lines

In the business area "Industrial Lines" at Talanx Re Broker we bundle the service for all primary insurance companies within the "Industrial" division of the Talanx Group, foremost HDI Global SE (HDI) and its foreign subsidiaries.

Our consultants possess many years of reinsurance experience and are able to provide our clients with expertise either on a line-of-business basis (HDI) or across all lines (foreign industrial subsidiaries).

We purchase reinsurance for industrial lines both on an obligatory treaty and on a facultative risk basis.

Property

After integrating the Gerling portfolio into HDI, we now place one of the largest European industrial property reinsurance programme. In addition to securing individual capacity for industrial risks, the main focus is on obtaining sufficient protection against the property portfolio's potential event accumulations. We actively support our customers in identifying, assessing and structuring their natural peril aggregates, which are mainly reinsured on non-proportional basis.

Engineering

HDI is a leading risk carrier in all major engineering insurance markets. The growing size and complexity of insured projects and the extensive risk portfolio requires ever increasing capacities and expert know-how. We place engineering risks foremost on a proportional reinsurance treaty basis.

Casualty

HDI heading the Talanx Group's industrial division is one of the leading insurers on the German industrial liability market in particular for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, and provides comprehensive insurance cover to its globally-operating policyholders. We purchase the respective capacity mainly as obligatory non-proportional reinsurance. Apart from the usual reinsurance cover for liability insurance we are also engaged in securing reinsurance for specialty lines such as D&O, professional liability, product recall, legal expenses, first party pollution cover, environmental damage, workers’ compensation or employers’ liability.

Furthermore our Retail & Group Protections team coordinates the reinsurance of the industrial motor and personal accident business - defined group-wide as "Standard Lines" for the purpose of reinsurance purchase.

Marine

HDI is one of the market leaders in the global marine business. The portfolio encompasses mainly cargo insurance with local and international exposures.

The reinsurance structure takes into account potential value accumulations in the global container trade and at various warehouse locations. The reinsurance we place is mostly non-proportional.

Aviation

The aviation business of HDI is weighted towards general aviation with a wide ranging portfolio in its German domestic market and numerous policies in selected foreign markets around the world. The coverage we place for our clients takes the form of a traditional structural mix of proportional reinsurance with non-proportional cover on the net retention.

In addition, we are involved in specialised underwriting segments such as reinsurance of airport operator liability business.

Foreign subsidiaries

The foreign subsidiaries of the Talanx Industrial division offer the whole spectrum of non-life industrial insurance to their local markets. We provide our services to the respective companies across all lines of business, tailoring reinsurance structures according to local requirements.

We allocated the support for the Talanx Industrial subsidiary in Austria to our Retail & Group Protections team due to the significant proportion of retail business within the overall portfolio of this company.
