Swiss Re Institute

Swiss Re has long been recognised as a knowledge leader within the re/insurance industry. We are convinced that a better understanding of the risks we all face supports the Group’s vision of making the world more resilient.

It was in this spirit that we launched Swiss Re Institute in March 2017. Swiss Re Institute conducts and publishes superior risk research to drive better decisions and innovation in the re/insurance industry. Swiss Re Institute curates risk and market data to enable solutions that create value for clients and to guide the Swiss Re Group’s strategic direction. Further, it builds and manages partnerships with world-class academic and research institutions (see examples on page 45).

Swiss Re Institute incorporates successful Swiss Re brands, such as the sigma publication series and the Centre for Global Dialogue. The Institute further acts as a coordination point for research-focused business lines within Swiss Re and from external partners.

Based on these activities, Swiss Re Institute supports Swiss Re’s commitment to corporate responsibility. We help highlight emerging risk trends, engage in dialogue and provide capacity-building sessions and seminars to clients and other stakeholders in different parts of the world, and seek to identify sustainable risk solutions.

Highlights among our many conferences and publications of 2018 include:
