Munich Re is launching a new division, called Global Specialty Insurance (GSI), which will be comprised of various primary insurance businesses from the group that are currently part of the reinsurance segment.

The restructuring, effective on Jan. 1, 2023, will not affect ERGO, the company’s primary insurance division.

GSI will be headed by Michael Kerner (57 years old), who was recently appointed to the Board of Management.

Munich Re said the aim of the restructuring is to continue “to support the very good business performance” seen by its primary insurance businesses, while driving further expansion in specialty primary insurance business.

The new GSI division mainly comprises business units from the risk solutions field, such as American Modern Insurance Group (AMIG), HSB, Munich Re Specialty Insurance, Munich Re Syndicate and Aerospace as well as Great Lakes Insurance (GLISE).

In the course of the integration, premium volume is projected to increase from around €7.5 billion ($8 billion) at present to almost €10 billion ($10.6 billion) by 2025, in line with the company’s “Ambition 2025” strategy. (With Ambition 2025 Munich Re aims to generate a high return on equity of between 12% and 14% by 2025.)

Kerner, a U.S. citizen, joined Munich Re in December 2018 and has been responsible for Munich Re Specialty Insurance in North America. He has more than 30 years of experience in the global insurance industry.

Claims scenarios


A shipyard located in an evacuation zone was required to move some of their sensitive equipment in preparation for an imminent storm. Because the company had comprehensive property insurance tailored to its needs, they had complete insurance coverage for the relocation of the equipment.

A hotel was destroyed by a hurricane. Since the hotel had property insurance, they were covered for loss of business income and cost to remove debris and rebuild, as well as cost to replace damaged business equipment.

The main electrical switchgear for a building experienced electrical arcing. Staff sprayed chemical fire extinguishers on it to prevent fire, but this did not stop the arcing. The switchgear and cabling were destroyed, requiring complete replacement. Since the building owner had Equipment Breakdown coverage, the $90,000 cost of replacement was covered.
