Continuity in times of transition
The origins of KROSE can be traced back to the Bremen raw tobacco importer Meyer & Krose, founded by Otto von Meyer and Wilhelm Krose in 1854. Wilhelm Krose’s son Friedrich took over the company in 1885. He started the insurance business as managing agent, i.e. as authorized underwriting agency. His sons continued the business since 1920, trading under the name of GEBRÜDER KROSE. After taking on partners from outside the family in the 1960s, KROSE established itself focusing on industrial insurance.
KROSE ReBrokers originates from the joint venture between KROSE and Daimler AG, founded in 1994. In addition to placing the Daimler AG group programs, this joint venture also placed reinsurance solutions worldwide for other clients. In 2021, KROSE acquired 100% of the shares in the joint venture.
KROSE ReBrokers is one of the leading reinsurance brokers in German-speaking countries, specializing in facultative reinsurance, structured reinsurance and alternative risk transfer. The focus on core business fields of industrial (primary) reinsurance, our reputation in the market as well as targeted investments in employee qualifications and technical infrastructure are essential for our success.
