Ger­man Ins­urance Asso­cia­tion (GDV)

The Berlin-based German Insurance Association (GDV) is the federation of private insurers in Germany. Its about 460 member companies offer comprehensive coverage and retirement provisions to private house-holds, trade, industry and public institutions, through almost 454 million insurance contracts.

The German insurance industry stands for risk cover, security and financial precautions in all areas of private and public life. It makes risks calculable and bearable for individuals and it is an indispensable basis for economic activity.
The insurance industry moreover provides gainful employment for 487,500 persons either as employees with insurers and in the intermediation business or as self-employed insurance intermediaries and advisers.
