Swiss Re Korea announced the addition of 73 frequently occurring diseases that underwriters encounter to Life Guide Korean, an online underwriting manual published in September 2013

Through this update, Swiss Re Life Guide is now able to provide Korean version with underwriting guidelines for 124 diseases and seven calculators to clients. Swiss Re Korea also plans to introduce the Cancer Only Guide, an 84-page guideline that was first showcased in the Korean market with the launch of the 2014 Life Guide.

“Last year, when we first launched Life Guide Korean, we promised to publish an updated 2nd edition of the guide,” Swiss Re Korea’s chief underwriter, Park Su-jin, commented. “We are very happy to have kept that promise. Since we published the Korean version of Life Guide, I feel very gratified whenever we receive positive feedback from our clients about how it’s now easier and simpler to use Life Guide. We will continue to strive to understand our clients’ demands regarding Life Guide and fulfill their needs.”

Life Guide Korean will be updated yearly by adding more frequently occurring diseases to the list. Besides publishing Life Guide Korean, Swiss Re Korea also plans to expand customized services for clients in Korea, which is emerging as a major market, by launching a Korean version of “e-Learning,” an online training program independently owned by Swiss Re.

Since its pioneering launch as the first online evidence-based, underwriting manual, Life Guide has been recognized as a market leader, and is road tested daily by thousands of clients in over 90 countries. Life Guide is available in 10 languages, including Korean, to provide the best services and maximize its value to customers all around the world.
