Swiss Re

The Swiss Re Group is one of the world’s leading providers of reinsurance, insurance and other forms of insurance-based risk transfer, working 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 insurance 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 14,500 employees provide a wide range of technical expertise, enabling us to develop unique solutions and drive growth. Swiss Re is organised into three Business Units, each with a distinct strategy and set of objectives contributing to the Group’s overall mission.

Swiss Re has been active in Asia since 1913. Swiss Re Asia Pte. Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Swiss Re Group, is strongly capitalised in line with regulatory requirements and shares the same financial strength rating as major Swiss Re Group’s operating entities. We serve our clients and partners across the region through a network of offices in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and Singapore.

We do this by providing freedom and resources to our entities in order to grow their businesses with the help of cutting-edge underwriting technology and outstanding customer service capabilities.

Public Sector Solutions

Building resilience to major shocks is a mounting priority for many governments. The reasons are clear: by planning ahead, using established and innovative risk management tools, authorities can reduce threats, as well as physical and financial impacts on people, property and infrastructure. Ultimately, safer countries and cities are more attractive to citizens, businesses and investors. Resilience strategies strengthen the ability to meet the future. Swiss Re Public Sector Solutions is dedicated to helping governments at all levels to strengthen their resilience strategies.
