Balance sums and gross premiums written in our list of the largest German insurance companies
Many providers of address databases not only offer obsolete data, but also comparatively little information about the companies in the respective lists. The team of ResearchGermany attaches great importance to the fact that our databases provide real added value. In the case of the list of Germany’s largest insurance companies, this means that we have identified relevant KPIs from recent years. We have analyzed the annual balance sheet for the years 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 in order to be able to offer you both total assets and gross premiums written. We wish you every success with the data.

Statistics based on the ResearchGermany database of the largest insurance companies in Germany
The ResearchGermany database of the German insurance industry covers all segments of the industry in the entire Federal Republic (property insurance, life insurance, health insurance, direct insurers, etc.) Thanks to the extensive data set, we are able to publish interesting statistics. In the following, we present the distribution of the insurance companies from our list by state and city in clearly arranged graphs. On request we are also able to prepare individual evaluations.
Distribution of the headquarters of the largest German insurance companies from our list by federal state
North Rhine-Westphalia leads the German insurance industry in terms of the number of insurance companies headquartered in the federal state. Bavaria and Lower Saxony are in the following places, with this being mainly determined by the respective state capitals (see following graph).
Distribution of the headquarters of the largest German insurance companies on our list by city
The absolute number of insurance companies per city shows that the insurance industry is relatively evenly distributed across Germany. Only Munich is home to more than ten insurance companies and can therefore claim a leading role for itself. The detailed data in our list provides further interesting information regarding the geographical distribution.
The German insurance industry: Statistics and facts
The German insurance industry is an important branch of the service sector. According to the central association GdV, in 2019 German insurance companies employed a total of 209,200 people. In addition, there are 201,600 self-employed insurance agents and brokers. On average, each German citizen spends 2,450 euros on insurance per year.
The larger insurance companies are supervised by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). These are 85 life insurers, 46 health insurers, 199 property and accident insurers and 29 reinsurers. They share about 90 percent of the German insurance market. On a regional level, there are also a few hundred smaller insurance companies. The insurance industry also includes institutions for company pension schemes (136 pension funds and 33 pension funds) and 33 death funds. In addition, various foreign providers are active in the German market.
This picture of great diversity and number is put into perspective when one considers that many insurers are subsidiaries of larger insurance groups. The major players in the market operate as universal insurers. This means that they cover the entire range of insurance business through subsidiaries. By far the German market leader is the Allianz Group, one of the world’s largest insurers, followed by the Munich Re Group, which also stands for the world’s largest reinsurance business. In third to fifth place are Talanx, R+V Versicherung and Generali Deutschland. The largest private health insurer is Debeka.

The companies included in the list can be found through various sources: Internet research, public registers, analysis of relevant news, investigation of relevant transactions, our extensive personal network. Hundreds of hours of detailed, high-quality research flow into each of our lists. All data points that we can enter via publicly available sources are included in our lists.
Every data point for which there is publicly available information is filled out in our lists. However, if we do not have an e-mail address or we do not know whether a company is investing in a particular area, we fill this field with an “n.a.”. In most cases we achieve a data coverage of over 90%. If you want to know the exact coverage of the list – e.g. how many e-mail addresses are available – our team will be happy to help you.
Our lists are always delivered as handy Excel files. On request we can also send you the list as a CSV file.
After purchasing the list, you can immediately download the list as an Excel file when paying by credit card or PayPal. You will also receive a download link by e-mail. Future free updates will also be sent to you by e-mail. If you pay in advance, you will receive the list after the amount has been credited to our account or you have sent us a bank transfer receipt.
We have noted the last update date in the product description at the top of the page. We update our lists regularly. Our customers receive free updates and additions to the list for at least 12 months.
Our lists contain – if publicly available – address, telephone number, e-mail addresses and management names of the listed companies. For privacy reasons, we may only include information that is publicly available or provided by the companies. If no data points are available, there is an “n.a.” in the corresponding field.
Due to the DSGVO our lists do not contain personal e-mail addresses and telephone numbers. Our lists contain publicly available contact data or contact data provided by the companies (e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, names of directors).
Our lists do not contain any personal contact data that is specifically protected by the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our lists always contain publicly accessible data points (official registers such as the Commercial Register or the Federal Gazette, Internet, company websites) or data provided voluntarily by companies and are therefore harmless.
In Germany, contact is regulated by §7 UWG. Thus, postal advertising in the B2B sector is generally permitted. Contacting by telephone is permitted if the business contact is presumably interested. This can also be accepted for e-mail contact, as long as the contact is made once and the contact is not included in newsletters without being asked.
Important note: We are not lawyers and cannot make legally binding statements. If you have any open questions, please feel free to contact us.
The companies included in the lists can be contacted in various ways – by telephone, postal letter, e-mail, networks such as LinkedIn, jointly attended trade fairs. In order to establish successful contacts, it is particularly important to work on individualized addresses tailored to the respective companies. Mass letters are rarely successful. Instead, our customers are most successful when they adapt to the companies included in our lists, obtain information and then address them in a customized manner. Another successful approach is to contact them via LinkedIn, for example, by selecting the right contact person from our list and then addressing them via a consistent starting point. Intros” that are mediated via shared contacts are also a good step towards establishing contact. Also possible: at trade fairs visited together, you can use the trade fair lists to search specifically for companies included in the lists and make appointments for meetings.
In general: the more effort is put into the individual approach, the more successful it is. Think about what suitable starting points are, how you can deliver added value and show the addressed companies that you put a lot of effort into the contact. Many of our customers have already built up valuable and successful business relationships.
