FRANKFURT AM MAIN / ACCESSWIRE / May 27, 2019 / Deutsche Familienversicherung plans to offer product concepts including life insurance components in the future. This requires a life insurer as risk carrier. Deutsche Familienversicherung and VPV Versicherungen (VPV) have agreed that VPV will assume this role. Last year, VPV had entered the Insurtech from Frankfurt as a shareholder during the IPO of Deutsche Familienversicherung.
Dr. Ulrich Gauß, Chief Executive Officer of VPV: “We took the opportunity to invest in the leading European Insurtech and therefore acquired a 15% stake in Deutsche Familienversicherung as part of the IPO.” Dr. Stefan M. Knoll, founder and CEO of Deutsche Familienversicherung, adds: “We are very pleased that VPV has declared its current purely financial investment a strategic investment. The emerging cooperation in life insurance represents enormous growth potential for both companies“.
