Diversification as the key to resilience

In the Börse Express podcast series "Von Bullen und Bären” (Of bulls and bears) on the topic of investment, Liane Hirner, CFRO, talks about the importance of diversification for the Group's success. VIG is diversified in many ways: Insurance companies and pension funds in 30 countries, insurance solutions in the property/casualty, life and health business, a multi-brand policy, multi-channel distribution etc. This contributes significantly to VIG's stability and is reflected in the continuous payment of dividends to its shareholders.

If we look back, we can see that we are simply a dividend guarantor. We have paid dividends to our shareholders every year without interruption since our IPO in 1994. And I don't think many companies can say that.

Education and individual responsibility form the basis for effective risk prevention

As part of the Sunrise podcast series "View from the Top", CEO Hartwig Löger discusses why VIG is different from other international insurance groups, why promoting risk expertise, especially among young people, is important, and what he personally values about his job.

The conversation also focuses on how economic success and sustainability efforts go hand in hand, and on the steps VIG is taking toward achieving net zero in investments.

In many areas, individual retirement plans are needed to supplement state pensions in order to provide adequate protection against certain risks that are not covered by the public pension system.

Liane Hirner on "Börsepeople im Podcast"

The "Börsepeople" series is dedicated to the careers of interesting personalities in the Austrian capital market. CFRO Liane Hirner talks to Christian Drastil about her studies, her time as an auditor and, of course, her work at VIG.
And above all, it's so much fun because I've spent 25 years learning everything from scratch and now, I can put it into practice. As an auditor, you just come in after the fact and find out if something was good or not so good. Now I'm more in charge and it's great to be able to shape things.
