Statistical Yearbook of German Insurance 2012

Private households and companies are day in and day out exposed to numerous risks. In modern societies the private insurance industry is indispensable for dealing with these risks.

Demographic changes, the challenges of climate change, but also the ever tighter public budgets will further increase the importance of private insurance in the next few decades. At the same time, private insurers are among the most important institutional investors in economic terms.

By publishing the Statistical Yearbook of German Insurance 2012 we again want to provide a selection of important data on the development of the German insurance industry and its economic and social environment.

We hope that the Statistical Yearbook will continue to be a useful and reliable data source for all those who are interested in the German insurance industry and can contribute to a better understanding of the insurance industry.
