Managing our assets
Asset Management manages the assets that Swiss Re generates through its core insurance and reinsurance businesses. We do so using a robust asset-liability management process.
In addition to matching assets and liabilities, our team optimises risk-adjusted investment returns within defined risk limits. Our clients are the Business Units, Reinsurance, Corporate Solutions and Admin Re. Their portfolios are managed individually according to their needs and objectives.
Insurance, by its nature, is a business with variable earnings. Asset Management is a building block of Swiss Re's core strategy and helps to minimise earnings volatility through prudent long-term investment.
We use a consistent top-down driven investment approach that allocates the management of assets to internal portfolio managers or selective leading external asset managers. External managers are closely monitored and allocated specific portfolios within their defined mandate parameters. Internal managers focus primarily on government bonds, agency bonds, covered bonds and equity ETFs.
In our ongoing efforts to improve the quality and relevance of our publications, we would like to know more about you.
