Oct. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Munich Re aims for a full-year profit, Chief Financial Officer Joerg Schneider said at a conference in Berlin today, reiterating the company’s forecast.

The reinsurer would like to keep its dividend “stable” for the current year, Schneider said, adding that it is still too early to give a forecast. Munich Re will book a further writedown on its Greek bond holdings in the third quarter, he added.
