Information Policy

Investors and other stakeholders can subscribe to receive ad hoc disclosures and further corporate news automatically at

Swiss Re’s core business — managing global risk — makes us by necessity an information company. Our information policy therefore goes well beyond legal requirements in establishing transparency in our communications and equal access to the facts for all investors and the public.

The official medium for publications of the company is the Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce (Schweizerisches Handelsamtsblatt). In addition, we use our website to provide comprehensive, timely news and information on our activities as well as background discussion and analysis of issues relating to Swiss Re’s business and the broader insurance and reinsurance industries. Investors and other stakeholders can subscribe to receive ad hoc disclosures and further corporate news automatically at Our contact details are provided in the Contacts section.

Our Investor Relations team holds regular meetings with institutional investors and analysts. At the 2015 Investors’ Day in Zurich in December, Swiss Re unveiled its strategic framework equipping the company to position itself strongly vis-à-vis the current and future opportunities and challenges facing the insurance industry. At the heart of the framework is the effective and systematic allocation of capital to access new and existing risk pools and revenue streams. Swiss Re also detailed how the framework will lay the foundation to meet its financial targets over the cycle. The presentations and conference call recordings from this event are also available on our website:

Swiss Re observes strict close periods around the publications of the Group’s quarterly and annual results. The close periods apply throughout the preparation of the results and provide for an appropriate cooling-off period after the release of the results. During such close periods, employees of Swiss Re and members of the Board of Directors are prohibited from trading in Swiss Re securities.
