Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein is the main shareholder of Vienna Insurance Group (VIG) – the leading insurance group in Austria and Central and Eastern Europe. In this function, Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein is concerned with key strategic matters within the Group. One of Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein’s major responsibilities is to preserve and safeguard the independence of the listed holding company.
As the main shareholder of VIG, which comprises more than 50 Group companies in 25 European countries, Wiener Städtische Versicherungsverein assumes responsibilities in areas far beyond purely commercial matters – responsibility towards the 25,000 or so employees who work for the Group as well as society as a whole.
It fulfils this responsibility by means of targeted sponsorship and support for social, arts and cultural activities, and this commitment extends well beyond Austria’s borders, with a strong focus on the Central and Eastern European countries in which the Vienna Insurance Group has a presence.
