Emerging risks

Emerging risks are newly developing or changing risks that are difficult to quantify. Swiss Re addresses such risks in a pre-emptive manner.

Re/insurers operate in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex risk landscape. This gives rise to "emerging risks" – newly developing or changing risks that are difficult to quantify and whose potential impact on our business is not yet sufficiently taken into account.

How we manage emerging risks

Detecting and investigating such emerging risks in a pre-emptive way forms an important part of Swiss Re's comprehensive approach to risk management. This is vital to reduce uncertainty and prevent unforeseen losses.
