Further important notes
As an international consultancy, we are, as stated above, exclusively active in the field of development and administration of company pension provision schemes (employee benefits). This also includes consulting with regard to the financing of company pension plans that, where appropriate, can be effected via insurances. We do not cover any other insurance sectors. We mediate only insurances of insurance companies that cooperate with foreign partner insurance companies via an international network. Thus, we keep all options open for our clients to conclude international pooling agreements upon reaching minimum sizes in several countries and to possibly receive a multinational dividend out of that. The insurance companies (in alphabetical order) are: Allianz, Alte Leipziger, Axa, Generali, Elips Life, Gothaer, HDI Gerling, R+V Versicherung, Swiss Life, Victoria, Zürich Gruppe. Insurance products of insurance companies other than the ones stated are only mediated by Profion on clients’ special request or if a special product requirement cannot be met in any other way.
Recommendations on insurances are regularly given acc. to the requirements that result from the company pension plan design requested by the client (e.g. specified payment arrangements, requested investment aspects) and from requirements that generally are to be considered (e.g. fiscally adequate funding levels of the pension vehicle, off-balance pension plan). For this purpose, the clients are questioned about their needs and preferences via modern means of communication. According to the clients’ statements, Profion will conduct a well-balanced market survey, extend the basis of information by clarifying all questions that have emerged and advise the clients. Furthermore, Profion will in direct contact with the above-mentioned insurance companies’ functional departments determine a basis of quotation adequate for each case. If applicable, Profion will reconcile expert information in order to subsequently select on this basis the product complying with the particular client’s case in consideration of i.e. the pricing, the required product features, the insurance company’s financial strength and reliability, the administrative efficiency, the legal accuracy as well as business management aspects. In a so-called proposal, the advice incl. the reasons behind as well as recommendations on one / several insurance/s that meet the client’s needs will be summarized and delivered to the client. These proposals at the same time serve as minutes of the consultation within the meaning of Section 61 VVG (German Insurance Contract Law).
