Our vision

We make the world more resilient.

Our mission

Together, we apply deep knowledge, intelligent data and capital strength to anticipate and manage risk. That's how Swiss Re powers progress for our clients, helping the world rebuild, renew and move forward. Today 75% of risks – from natural catastrophes and climate change, to ageing populations and cybercrime – remain uninsured. We aim to change that.
