Swiss Re's Life Guide - Korean launch

When sound decisions matter, you can count on Swiss Re Life Guide. Its comprehensive data and evidence-based ratings make the manual a market leader trusted by thousands of users worldwide.

Swiss Re Korea Life underwriters have been working on this project for more than six months to translate around 50 diseases, which are most frequently referred to, and the Guide's seven calculators.  All translated pages are reviewed by Swiss Re's medical doctor.

Swiss Re chief underwriter, Joohyun Oak said "Although Life Guide is well recognised by its clients globally for rating and training, it was relatively less used in Korea due to the language limitation. Korea is an important market for Swiss Re, which is why we are introducing a Korean version of Life Guide. With the launch of Life Guide Korean, we hope that more Korean clients will be able to easily access Life Guide and find its value."  Next year Swiss Re Korea plans to launch a 2nd edition with another 50 translated diseases and will continue to expand its Korean pages in Life Guide.

Since its pioneering launch as the first online comprehensive evidence-based manual, Life Guide has been recognised as a market leader, road tested daily by thousands of clients in over 90 countries. Life Guide is available in 10 languages, including Korean, to maximize its value to customers working in different markets.
