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.


Political risks

Based on specialised know-how, Swiss Re continuously monitors potential political risks and analyses whether these may have an impact on our business.
