Company History

IAT: About us 

Serving our Clients for 75 Years

1956: Walter Dickgiesser, father of the present director Dr. Gerhard Dickgiesser, is appointed to principal manager of the Colonia and Basler insurance companies.

1981: Shortly after completing his doctoral dissertation, Dr. Gerhard Dickgiesser and Michaela Dickgiesser join the company.

In the following years, the German insurance market and client demands change and evolve.

Hence, the firm decides to function as an independent insurance broker and forms partnerships with all relevant national and international insurance companies.

1991: The company is transformed into Dr. Dickgiesser Assekuranz ? IAT Insurance Brokers. The acronym IAT points out the special expertise in engineering, architectural and technological insurance concepts.

The firm is highly successful and expands into the information technology sector. To strengthen this branch of the business, an ?IT Center of Excellence'' is constructed.

2002: The company moves into the completed IT Portal.

Corporate pensions and employee benefit plans gain in importance following Germany?s pension reform. Retirement provisions become the second specialization of the company besides the information technology sector. As a result, the meaning of ?IAT? changes to ?Institute for Retirement ManagemenT?.

2004:  The company changes its name and legal form to Dr. Dickgiesser Assekuranz-Makler OHG.

Today, the trained and highly motivated team consists out of 12 employees. Their experience and creativity facilitates the development of comprehensive insurance and risk management solutions for our national and international clients.
