Get Auswertung der Umfrage: Beschwerdemanagement in der PDF

By Thomas Krosse,Jens Ringel

Forschungsarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich BWL - financial institution, Börse, Versicherung, notice: "keine", , - Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Wegen gravierender Veränderungen in der Versicherungswirtschaft rückt der Wert des Kunden immer mehr in den Mittelpunkt. Geringere Ablaufleistung in der Lebensversicherung, hohe Schadenquoten in der Sachversicherung sowie steigende Leistungsausgaben in der Krankenversicherung bewirken ein hohes Konfliktpotential zwischen den Versicherungsunternehmen und den Versicherten. Der Wert des Vertrages, der Wert des Kunden sowie der Wert der gesamten Kundenbeziehung rückten immer mehr in den Fokus des Managements. Es genügt nicht mehr, die Gründe von Stornoquoten zu analysieren, um den Verlust eines Bestandskunden zu verhindern. Die Steuerungsmechanismen des Managements müssen frühzeitiger in den Kundenbetreuungsprozess eingreifen. Mit der Einführung von Solvency II und IFRS wird sich der Wettbewerb durch mehr Transparenz und Vergleichbarkeit der Versicherungsunternehmen verstärken. Es werden die Versicherungsunternehmen den größten Vorteil im Kampf um das benötigte Eigenkapital haben, welche die beste Rendite-Risiko-Position ausweisen können. Doch dies verlangt wertvolle und zufriedene Kunden. Der Wegfall bestehender Kundenbeziehungen bedeutet nicht nur einen hohen Wertverlust, sondern ebenfalls hohe Anstrengungen und Kosten im Neugeschäft, um diese Vertragsverluste kompensieren zu können. Die Versicherer können diesen Negativereignissen vorbeugen, indem sie über ihr Beschwerdemanagement solche Vorfälle verhindern. Ziel dieser Umfrage struggle, herauszufinden wie mit Beschwerden in den Versicherungsunternehmen umgegangen wird, insbesondere ob in den Unternehmen eine Messung sowie eine effektive Auswertung der Beschwerden erfolgen. Die Praxis hat gezeigt, dass sich zwar die einzelnen Gesellschaften mit dem Beschwerdemanagement beschäftigen, aber dieses Thema in der Branche noch durchaus sehr unterschiedlich bewertet wird. Dies betrifft speziell die Auswertung des Beschwerdemanagements und der Ableitung von Erkenntnissen für die Unternehmenssteuerung. Mit Hilfe der gewonnenen Ergebnisse ist es möglich, Nutzen und Missnutzen eines einfachen, transparenten sowie aussagekräftigen Controllings der registrierten Beschwerden aufzuzeigen, um nicht nur den Verlust von Kundenbeziehungen zu verhindern, sondern auch Hinweise für Verbesserungen in den Geschäftsprozessen zu erhalten. Die Auswertung der Befragung zeigt, dass über die Bedeutung des Beschwerdemanagements in der Versicherungsbranche kein Diskussionsbedarf besteht, aber dessen Umsetzung noch vielen Fragen offen lässt.

New PDF release: High-Frequency-Trading. Entwicklung und kritische Würdigung

By Valentin Haag

Projektarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich BWL - financial institution, Börse, Versicherung, word: 2,1, Duale Hochschule Baden Württemberg Mosbach, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Hochfrequenzhandel ist an den Börsen in Mode: machine verschieben rasend schnell Aktien hin und her. So schnell kommt kein Mensch mit. Ist am Ende das ganze Finanzsystem in Gefahr?“
Wer sich zum Thema High-Frequency-Trading informiert, wird sehr schnell mit Zeitungsmeldungen, Kommentaren und Fragen, wie der oben genannten, konfrontiert werden. Es häufen sich Nachrichtenmeldungen, die den Hochfrequenzhandel kritisieren und eine Einschränkung dieses Teilbereichs des algorithmischen Handels fordern.
Schon während der Immobilienkrise in den united states im Jahr 2007/2008 häuften sich die Meldungen, der computergesteuerte Börsenhandel sei der Urheber dieser jüngsten Finanzkrise.
Dabei zeigte sich eine ziemlich einseitige Berichterstattung in Bezug auf dieses Thema gepaart mit einer allgemeinen Skepsis gegenüber automatisierten Vorgängen an Börsen.
Spätestens seit dem sogenannten „Blitz-Crash“ am 6. Mai 2010 in den united states, bei dem in kürzester Zeit einzelne Aktien, wie die von Procter & Gamble, mehr als forty % ihres Wertes verloren und sich der Kurs in ebenso schneller Zeit wieder erholte, ist das Thema des High-Frequency-Trading und insbesondere auch das Bewusstsein für dessen Risiken in Deutschland angekommen. Bis heute streiten sich die Experten beider Seiten darum, ob der „blitzschnelle“ Einbruch des NASDAQ an diesem Datum entweder durch das High-Frequency-Trading verursacht und zusätzlich verstärkt wurde, oder doch sogar abgemildert wurde. Die Kritikerseite, die die Einführung elektronischer Börsensysteme, wie XETRA oder NASDAQ, immer wieder bekämpft hatte, und dem Präsenzhandel direkt am Börsenparkett nachtrauerten, bekam nun verstärkt die mediale und öffentliche Aufmerksamkeit.
Auch die Politik reagierte jetzt auf dieses umstrittene Thema und verabschiedete das „Gesetz zur Vermeidung von Gefahren und Missbräuchen im Hochfrequenzhandel“ oder kurz „Hochfrequenzhandelsgesetz“.
Auf den nachfolgenden Seiten soll nun zuerst die Entwicklung des High-Frequency-Trading ausgehend vom klassischen Börsenhandel aufgewiesen werden, die neuen gesetzlichen Regularien beleuchtet werden und sowohl die Chancen als auch die Risiken kritisch hinterfragt werden. Ziel ist es, die oftmals einseitige Berichterstattung der Populärmedien, ausgehend von der Beschreibung der Strategien im High-Frequency-Trading, um das eine oder andere Argument zu ergänzen, um eine ganzheitliche Betrachtung der Thematik zu gewährleisten.
