Why VIG?

Insurance companies are boring and conservative.
That is true – when dealing with the entrusted premiums, VIG surely will not risk anything. This is the boring side, which is absolutely necessary, in order to weather even the toughest times successfully. But there are many exciting facets to the insurance business, not least due to the international diversity of VIG. Check out what VIG´s employees have to say about their career in an international insurance group like VIG! 

Panel Discussion with CEO Prof. Stadler

During the panel discussion "Austria's early dip in the East - 25 years later: Blessing or Curse?" between VIG CEO Prof. Elisabeth Stadler and Dr. Arnold Schuh, head of WU Competence Center for Emerging Markets & CEE, both parties concluded that the early market entry was an important move.
