20 years IHC-Company S.A.

20 years of IHC-Company S.A. – 20 years of “taking care”!

20 years … that’s how long we, IHC-Company S.A., have stood for tailor-made insurance solutions for foreign doctoral candidates, scholarship holders and academics working temporarily in Germany.

2003 – the beginning of good protection

In 2003, when Sieghart K. Herter founded IHC-Company S.A. in Luxembourg, the goal was clearly defined: He wanted to offer affordable and customized health insurance to foreign nationals working at German research institutions. Germany is an important location for international research and science, and there was an urgent need for an insurance solution that was tailored to the specific requirements of this target group. Sieghart K. Herter developed a German product specifically for this market.

The generational change: son Christoph Herter takes over

In 2008, Christoph Herter took over the management of IHC-Company S.A., with Sieghart K. Herter continuing to act in an advisory capacity. This generational change brought a breath of fresh air to the company – the range of services was expanded and insurance products were further developed to meet the changing needs of customers. Over the past 20 years, we have managed to establish ourselves as one of the top addresses for foreign academics in Germany. Our focus remains on providing insurance solutions that are specifically tailored to the needs of this target group.

The importance of customer satisfaction

A key element of our success is prioritizing customer satisfaction. Our company has always listened to our customers’ feedback and adapted our products and services accordingly. This has enabled us to build long-term customer relationships – we have insured over 20,000 people since 2003.

Vision for the future

We look to the future with optimism. Our goal is to continue offering innovative insurance solutions to support even more foreign nationals at German research institutions. In doing so, we remain true to our original promise: to offer affordable and ideal health insurance tailored to the specific needs of our customers.

For us, the 20th anniversary is not only a milestone for our company, but also a symbol of the values of commitment, innovation and customer satisfaction. We would like to thank all our customers, partners and institutes for their trust and look forward to continuing to make a significant contribution to supporting foreign researchers in Germany in the years to come.
