Building new Life & Health solutions together

Swiss Re is committed to helping clients solve problems, including finding ways to optimise capital, manage new areas of risk and improve overall efficiency.

We understand that the duelling demands for efficiency and transparency place growing demands on our clients, but we also see these as opportunities to help. As our industry moves forward, changing social demographics – especially ageing populations – a renewed focus on solvency and capital, along with increasing competitive, consumer and regulatory pressures all factor into our clients' success.

Our job is to adapt with our clients to these changing needs through creative thinking and smart innovation.

Life and Health focus: an eye to the future

Today's changing industry and social landscapes constantly push us to think about new approaches and new ways to be prepared – and ultimately to help consumers better prepare – for what lies ahead. At Swiss Re, we always look for ways to help our clients reach more consumers with better solutions and ultimately, ensure more people around the world have the life and health insurance protection they need.

New solutions

Successful innovation requires a solid launch pad. Clients bring their in-depth consumer and distribution expertise and pair it with our extensive experience, research and a strong capital base. We're constantly working on tools and services that help insurers underwrite more efficiently, actively manage their inforce business and improve future business through deep data insights and analysis.

Transforming and trading risk

We’re seeking efficient ways to transfer risk to the capital markets, enabling us to offer capital solutions to also our clients and to maximise our own efficiency, ensuring we can be responsive going forward.
