Forterer Resigns from Converium’s Board of Directors

September 30, 2004

Dr. Jurgen Forterer, CEO of R+V Versicherung, Wiesbaden, has resigned from the Board of Directors of Converium Holding Ltd. effective September 29, 2004.

A company bulletin said his decision is directly related to the Group’s announcement that it will “focus on small and medium-sized clients in Europe” in the future (see IJ Website Sept. 29).

Forterer explained that the decision would lead to direct competition with the reinsurance business of R+V Versicherung. In order to avoid any conflict of interest he has decided to step down from his position as a member of Converium’s Board.

Forterer has been a Board member since Converium’s Initial Public Offering, and the company expressed its thanks for “his valuable contributions.”
