Risk report

Operationalisation of strategy

The risk strategy derived from the corporate strategy constitutes the basis for our handling of risks and opportunities. The parameters and decisions of the Executive Board with respect to Hannover Re’s risk appetite are fundamental to the acceptance of risks. The risk strategy – as a self-contained set of rules – serves as the foundation for Group-wide risk management. It is an integral component of the guidelines for risk monitoring and risk steering and is reflected on the various levels of risk management and in the operational guidelines. The corporate strategy and risk strategy as well as the guidelines derived from them are subject to regular review. Through this scrutiny of our assumptions and any resulting adjustments, we ensure that our guidelines and hence the principles on which our actions are based are always kept up-to-date. The insights obtained establish a framework for decision-making on all management levels by bringing transparency to the relationship between opportunities and risks.
