We are one of the world’s leading providers of reinsurance, insurance and other forms of insurance-based risk transfer. Through our work with clients we fulfill our vision of helping to make the world more resilient.
We have a distinct mission: Together, we apply fresh perspectives, knowledge and capital to anticipate and manage risk. That's how Swiss Re creates smarter solutions for our clients, helping the world rebuild, renew and move forward. Today 75% of risks – from natural catastrophes and climate change, to ageing populations and cybercrime – remain uninsured. We aim to change that.
Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, where it was founded in 1863, the Swiss Re Group operates through a network of around 80 offices globally. Our approximately 13,200 employees provide a wide range of technical expertise, enabling us to develop unique solutions and drive growth. Swiss Re is organised into two Business Units, each with a distinct strategy and set of objectives contributing to the Group’s overall mission. Through our strong financial position, we provide the security clients need, especially during times of uncertainty and transition.
