Our history

In many ways, Swiss Re's history and the history of reinsurance have been one narrative. In conjunction with our 150 Years Anniversary in 2013 we launched the Kaleidoscope of Insurance History. Visit us from time to time to enjoy new articles about Swiss Re and the fascinating history of the insurance industry.

For more details about Swiss Re's history visit our Timeline.



Brochures
For our 150 Years Anniversary we're launching a new series of publications, covering the history of some of the key markets where we share a long history with our clients and partners. We'll add the latest ones here as soon as each is published.
