Versicherungswirtschaft: Mr. Durand, the French team is one of the fancied teams for the World Cup this year. Which team do you root for?

Xavier Durand:  I’m French – so of course I’m supporting the French team!

And I must say, I much prefer to see healthy competition on the football pitch than trade wars in the global economy.
