“With the result for the first three months, we have achieved more than a quarter of the full-year guidance of at least €1.7 billion and are thus very much on course,” chief executive Jean-Jacques Henchoz said in a release.

“At the same time, we have further strengthened our resilience. In the face of the current challenges, we are thereby remaining a reliable partner for our clients.”

The CEO added: “In the renewal negotiations at April 1 we were able to build further on the significant improvements in prices and conditions achieved in the January 1 renewals. We have thus put in place another major cornerstone to secure Hannover Re’s long-term profitability.”
