Strong partner, distinct profile

Our stable business structure, comprehensive know-how and financial strength make us a reliable partner for international companies, institutions and investors.

A story with a future

In times of volatile finance markets, it is essential for a company to have a strong basis. That is why people have trusted the reliability and strength of DEVK for more than 130 years. Founded in 1886 by railway workers as a funeral expenses fund, the company has focused ever since on the basic principle of reciprocity. These roots have shaped our understanding of partnership and sustainable growth.

Independent business

Two mutual insurance associations are at the heart of DEVK Group. They are the sole owners of the DEVK businesses. Speculative shareholder interests thus have no place in our business decisions and the strategic orientation of DEVK.

Principles provide added value

In our thinking and actions, we are committed to values that aim for a sustainable development of our business.

  • Solidity: With its strong equity base and high reservation standards, DEVK stands for long-term financial solidity.
  • Transparency: Communicating clearly and comprehensibly, and ensuring that decisions are always plausible – for us, those are the prerequisites for a productive partnership.
  • Trust: We see ourselves as a professional partner among equals, with mutual trust being the basis of a successful collaboration.

Partners can bank on reliable and sustainable business relations. These are based on entrepreneurial independence of investors, responsible know-how and sustainable management.
