MEAG, the joint asset manager of ERGO and Munich Re, manages the investments of ERGO. The company is one of the major investors in the European finance sector. A comprehensive, joint controlling system operated by ER-GO and MEAG ensures that we meet the commitments to our customers over the long term. A dedicated early-warning system at the ERGO Group monitors compliance with the mandate specifications to MEAG every day. This also takes account of the investment categories, quality and limits.
ERGO invests more than half of the premiums received from customers in companies that take account of economic, ethical and environmental aspects. These companies are successful while taking care of the environment and the community. We invest in shares and corporate bonds which are listed in sustainability indexes. Government bonds are also reviewed using sustainability criteria. All the other public institutions issuing interest-bearing investments, such as government companies, institutes or issuers of covered bonds are checked independently.
