Hannover Re Expects Losses in the Range of EUR 120 - 180 Million From Winter Storm 'Kyrill'
HANNOVER, Germany, Jan. 29, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Winter storm 'Kyrill' - which swept across large parts of Europe on 18 and 19 January 2007 - caused insured losses in the order of EUR 4 to 7 billion. The exact scale of insured damage cannot yet be reliably assessed in view of the multitude of small- and medium-size losses and the large number of countries affected. Against this backdrop Hannover Re expects a net loss burden of EUR 120 to 180 million before tax; the bulk of this expenditure is attributable to claims in Germany. The total loss amount was alleviated by the 'K5' risk securitisation which had been expanded to USD 520 million as at January 1, 2007 (see NewsLetter published on January 16, 2007).
