Bernd Sablowsky follows Carsten Werle as Head of Investor Relations

With effect from 16 August 2021, Bernd Sablowsky will take over as Head of Investor Relations at Talanx AG and thus assume responsibility for global communications with investors, analysts and rating agencies. Carsten Werle is leaving the company at his own request in order to set up his own business with a new professional project from the autumn.


Bernd Sablowsky (51) has been Head of M&A for Talanx AG since 2018 and will take on the new role in addition to his role as Head of M&A. He has many years of capital market and management experience, particularly from his time in investment banking at Deutsche Bank, and has supported a large number of IPOs and capital increases as well as takeover transactions in his professional career. Carsten Werle (49) started in the Investor Relations department of Talanx AG on 1 November 2011. He contributed to the successful IPO and took over as head of the department in September 2013.

"We owe Carsten Werle a great debt of gratitude. Over the past ten years he has made a very significant contribution to the professional appearance and positive image of Talanx AG on the capital markets. This is underscored by the numerous awards that the team and he personally have won in recent years," says Torsten Leue, Chairman of the Board of Management of Talanx AG. "We respect his desire to start something new and sincerely wish him all the best for the future. At the same time, we are very pleased that in Bernd Sablowsky we have been able to recruit an extremely competent and capital market-experienced successor from our own ranks, who has already been doing excellent work for us since 2018. We wish Bernd Sablowsky a happy hand and much success in his new, additional task."
