Creating sustainable value

Our strategy remains unchanged – we aim to achieve our financial targets and deliver value for all stakeholders.

Our strategy

Swiss Re’s purpose is to make the world more resilient and act as a shock absorber for societies and communities. Our access to risk is not guaranteed, even as risk pools continue to grow over the next decades.

We therefore diversify our access to risk pools to fulfill our purpose and succeed. We do this by leveraging three strategic assets that we have built over more than 150 years.

Together, these strategic assets differentiate us from the competition and, alongside our collaborative, innovative and empowering culture, help us attract and retain some of the best talents in the industry.

Implementing our strategy

We currently implement our strategy of diversifying access to risk pools by:

Expanding our Reinsurance business through transactions and tailored solutions

Accessing corporate risk directly through our Corporate Solutions business

Accessing retail market risk by innovating the value chain through our digital insurance white-labelling solution iptiQ

Gaining exposure to risk pools in high-growth markets that we can’t access otherwise by taking minority stakes through Principal Investments and Acquisitions


This will enable us to achieve our financial targets and, over the long term, create sustainable value for all stakeholders.
