Insurers win prestigious duel against RydAssCup 2022 brokers | AssCompact

This matchplay tournament is played using the system of the original Ryder’s Cup, golf’s most prominent event, where the best golfers in Europe compete with their competitors from the USA. Applied to the insurance industry, this meant that a select group of 24 players -twelve from the side of the broker and the insurer- faced each other in tense duels.

Gerhard Matschnig (insurer) and Christian Brandstätter (rider) acted as team captains (non-playing captains) and ensured the professional support of the respective teams throughout the tournament.

In addition to two days of intense competition and high-quality golf, this weekend was of course mainly about networking in a relaxed atmosphere. Since this year, Franz Waghubinger and AssCompact, as organizers, professionally accompany and organize this top-level networking event. “AssCompact sees itself as a platform and ‘interlocutor’ in the industry. The RydAssCup is a personal matter for me. Networking can take place here at the highest “industry level”.

After exciting duels in a wonderful golf climate, the representatives of the insurance companies managed to prevail with 14:10 points and lift the winner’s trophy. Even if there was a nice atmosphere at the evening event and the award ceremony, there was of course some fun advice from the winners after the prestigious victory. This further increases the ambition and motivation of the “Makler” team to fight and take revenge in the next RydAssCup.
