  • Dividend of EUR 5.75 per share approved

  • Corporate culture, partnership-based solutions, capital strength and focus on reinsurance as the basis for sustained profitable growth

Hannover, 4 May 2022: The virtual Annual General Meeting of Hannover Rück SE today approved all proposed resolutions by a large majority.

In his address Chief Executive Officer Jean-Jacques Henchoz reviewed the challenges of the past financial year and looked ahead to the most pressing issues facing Hannover Re in the future, including global warming, sustainability, digitalisation and demographic change. Furthermore, he described the strengths that are crucial to Hannover Re's sustained profitable growth: the robust corporate culture, partnership-based solutions for clients, capital strength and a focus on reinsurance.

The Annual General Meeting approved the proposal of the Executive Board and Supervisory Board to pay a total dividend of EUR 5.75 per share for the 2021 financial year. The payout consists of an unchanged ordinary dividend of EUR 4.50 per share and a special dividend of EUR 1.25 per share. This puts the distribution to shareholders of Hannover Re on a record level.
