Athene Lebensversicherung AG

Athene Lebensversicherung AG is a German insurance company focused on the efficient management of insurance portfolios in the areas of life, occupational disability and retirement planning.

Our parent company is the Athora Holding Ltd. (formerly AGER). With its subsidiaries Athora is a specialist in the European life run-off market.

From our headquarters in Wiesbaden, approximately 185 employees of our group-internal service company Athene Deutschland Services GmbH (ADSC) manage and service approximately 290,000 contracts in Germany.

Our Origins

The company was founded in 1836 as Berlinische Lebens-Versicherungs Gesellschaft.

In 1994, the company acquired the Hamburger Lebensversicherung AG. Four years later it was taken over by Netherlands-based Delta Lloyd N.V. The company was later renamed Delta Lloyd Lebensversicherung.

In the course of the acquisition by Athene Holding Ltd., the name Delta Lloyd Lebensversicherung was changed to Athene Lebensversicherung in October 2015.

In January 2018 the deconsolidation of Athene Lebensversicherung AG‘s direct parent company Athora Holding Ltd. from Athene Holding took place.

Athene Holding remains a minority shareholder of Athora Holding Ltd. and supports its business in a number of different ways as a long-term strategic partner.

Our Philosophy

Financial security, whether in old age or during unforeseen events, is an important element of life planning. As a reliable partner for our customers, we ensure that their insurance policies are managed with a high degree of security and revenue.

Highly focused business model

We benefit from a long-term experience in the run-off business, we have built up since 2010. Our employees are experts at what they do because they concentrate solely on our existing customers and do not have to worry about developing new products or attracting new business. A modern, sustainable IT infrastructure that can integrate further platforms is the backbone for managing our policies efficiently.

Quality and stability for policy holders

Policyholders get the same service from us as they would from the predecessor company. It is in our natural interest to keep customers until their contracts end. The lower the cancellation rate, the better it is for us. As a result, the whole company is geared toward keeping service quality high.

Besides customer protection, a sophisticated asset and risk management is our top priority. This is key to generate adequate returns and offer customers the necessary long-term stability, especially in times of low interest rates.

Reputation of insurance companies in good hands

When legacy portfolios no longer fit into the existing business model, we enable life insurance companies to free up capital and management capacities that can then be used to build a set-up viable for the future. We are a solidly capitalized company und want to shape the development of the German and European run-off market on a long-term basis.
