Sustainability-related information according to EU Disclosure Regulation *1)
Long-term and sustainable action, taking into account economic aspects, is a priority for the Medlife Insurance Ltd. as an insurance company of the GRAWE Group, which has almost 200 years of experience in the insurance field, this is not just a catchword - for us as a responsible company, this is a living concept.
As a provider of life insurance products, we have an obligation to our customers to generate an appropriate return and to meet our obligations in the long-term perspective. There are currently no sustainable life insurance products in our product portfolio. Sustainability risks are not yet explicitly taken into account in our investment decision-making processes and insurance consulting activities. Information on the adverse impact of our investment decisions on sustainability factors is currently being prepared. In close cooperation with the responsible parties at Group level, our goal is to accelerate our work on sustainability issues and subsequently implement them.
Our compensation policy is consistent with the inclusion of sustainability risks in that our compensation and incentive structures promote sustainable, value-based actions. A balanced mix of fixed and variable compensation is designed to avoid excessively risky operations. The components of variable compensation take into account both the achievement of annual goals and the long-term success of the company. To ensure sustainable and quality client relationships, we do not provide any incentives to intermediate products which are not in the best interest of the client.
