Japan occupies a special place in Swiss Re’s history. In 1913, we signed the first contract in Japan with Kobe Marine Transport & Fire Insurance. We are proud that, today, we can celebrate 100 years of business relations with your country. Over these 100 years, we have supported many more clients and we have, again and again, been impressed by the professionalism and sophistication of the Japanese insurance sector.
