Meyerthole Siems Kohlruss (MSK) – actuarial consulting since 1998.
Love for mathematics
MSK supports insurers in strategic decisions and operative processes in the area of property and casualty insurance. MSK sums up complex issues in a nutshell and offers decision proposals – building bridges between theory and practice. Solid analyses and economic success are a unit. Our consulting is carried out with commitment, creativity and professionality. We love mathematics and know the market – since more than 20 years.
Focus on property and casualty insurance
The emphasis is on creating and operating data pools, with a regular portfolio analysis including benchmarks, classic and innovative pricing and NatCat modelling. In addition, there are evaluations of technical provisions according to different accounting standards, analysis and evaluation of assumed and ceded reinsurance as well as support in the implementation of Solvency II. All of these areas are interconnected. We put emphasis on a wholistic perspective that takes the overall picture into account. At the same time, we look at things from the point of view of our customers in order to gain an optimal result. We focus on property and casualty insurance. A clearly defined area in which our expert knowledge covers all details.
The broad customer base ranges from primary insurers, captives and corporates to underwriting agents, courts, associations and reinsurers. MSK is commissioned by market leaders, small and medium sized businesses as well as by start-ups. We address customers according to their individual interests and preconditions – offering support in the further development of their enterprise. A big emphasis is on a personal and respectfull exchange. The aim is to offer the best quality. Every year we accompany more than 100 projects in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The foundation of our work is a professional way of dealing with data. In order to take sustainable decisions, a clean analysis is essential. Big Data has been a part of the company’s history early on. In 2002, MSK’s first data pool was founded. Since that time, MSK has founded data pools in all sections for private in commercial lines.
When dealing with sensitive data, it it crucial to employ reliable technical and logistical methods. Since 2011, MSK‘s information security management system is approved by DEKRA (according to ISO 27001). It is being re-evaluated annually.
We achieve our success as a team. An open and vivid team culture is important for us. Our common set of values has been debated and put down by all members of the team. The company is very flexible, effective and creative. The constant striving for the best solution is supported by flat hierarchies. Personal encounters are important at MSK. "Mathematical consulting in a personal, friendly, and very exciting environment with much joy for the work," writes a team member at kununu. In 2019 a second office was opened in Cologne. There is a reason why it is located next to the original premises: We are in a constant process and development and at the same time, continuity is central for us. The word “we” is vital for our culture. We regularly support social projects.
