Munich Re may help with Irish health insurance problem
It is unlikely that Munich Re would invest in VHI. A more likely scenario is that the German reinsurance giant would assist the company through reinsurance, as it did with Vivas. VHI does not currently purchase any reinsurance
The Irish government may soon be offered a solution to its long-running problem with state-owned health insurer VHI’s solvency.
According to a report in a Dublin Sunday newspaper, Oliver Tattan, a former chief executive of VHI, is assembling a consortium
backed by Munich Re to mount a bid for the company.
