Swiss Re Corporate Solutions has opened an office in Hamburg, Germany, to grow its regional commercial insurance portfolio. The operation will serve large and upper mid-sized companies through their broking partners with a focus on primary Property, Casualty and select Specialty lines, such as Engineering & Construction and Renewable Energy.
Located in Neustadt and already operational, the office will serve as a regional hub for primary commercial insurance business in northern Germany, covering Berlin, Bremen, Hamburg, Hannover and Lübeck.
"This further step into Hamburg will expand our core German business and open up channels to grow our primary insurance offering," said Bijan Daftari, Country Manager of Germany, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions. "We’ve already had a local team working within the region for the past two years, but now, by solidifying our physical presence in northern Germany, we will strengthen existing relationships and capitalise on new opportunities with clients and brokers."
Ralf Wiemers, who joined the company on 1 July as Senior Client Manager and Head Hamburg Office, will lead the new operation. He spent most of his 24-year career in the primary insurance sector in the Hamburg region and has held various executive positions in sales and claims.
"With his extensive industry experience and successful regional track record, Ralf is ideally suited to lead the new hub in Hamburg," said Mr. Daftari. "I look forward to working with him to provide clients and brokers in northern Germany with more localised services and solutions."
The Hamburg office is operating as a branch of the carrier Swiss Re International SE.
Swiss Re Corporate Solutions currently serves clients and brokers in Germany from offices in Munich and Frankfurt, and across Europe from offices in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Genoa, London, Madrid, Manchester, Milan, Munich, Paris and Zurich.

To succeed with a medical malpractice case a plaintiff must provide evidence of negligence through establishing four elements: duty, breach, injury and damages. When the provider and a patient establish a professional relationship, the provider has a responsibility to provide a reasonable treatment plan. This is the element of duty. Our expert legal panel will analyze the provider-patient relationship and discuss relevant medical malpractice cases examining the duty to provide care. The panel will provide insight on when a duty typically does not arise as with independent medical exams, employee physicals and workers' compensation exams. We will explore professional liability insurance contract language, terms and conditions to be carefully understood when considering the element of duty.Learn more
