From Bremen into the world

Lampe & Schwartze KG is an independent group of companies in the insurance industry offering a wide range of services. Our origins date back to 1858, when the company Lampe & Schierenbeck was founded as a private insurer specifically for marine insurance. A group of merchants in Bremen financed the insurance for ships and transported goods with their own resources. In 1896, the first agency agreement was concluded with Allianz Versicherungs-AG, slowly ushering in the transition into an underwriting agent. The company Buse & Schwartze was founded in 1908. The two underwriting agents merged in 1998 to form Lampe & Schwartze KG.

Today, the Lampe & Schwartze Group is divided into different areas and subsidiaries, and has developed a competitive edge based on outstanding expertise. With more than 250 employees, we are one of the ten largest medium-sized and privately owned insurance intermediaries in Germany.

We think and act in line with the Hanseatic tradition. Our work is characterised by open-mindedness, client orientation, innovation and diligence. Lampe & Schwartze, a partner-managed and independent insurance provider, is run with long-term business relations in mind.
