Our Mission and Priorities

Swiss Re continues to sharpen its focus on core business. Our mission is clear and simple: to be the leading player in the wholesale re/insurance industry.

What ‘wholesale’ means to us: focusing on large and complex re/insurance transactions with insurance clients, corporate clients and public sector clients – as well as with pension funds. We anticipate extreme scenarios and enable the risk taking that is essential to the development of enterprise and progress in society. This is what Swiss Re is all about.

The Place to Succeed

Client centricity, agility, team spirit, passion to perform and integrity – these are aspects, not just of the organisation, but of how its people should do business every day. The best reason for aligning Swiss Re’s structure with its strategic aims is to create room for employees to exercise their talents and initiative. A clear statement of corporate values now complements Swiss Re’s operating model and business goals. Across the Group, employees and managers will find improved scope to serve their clients, to make decisions and take responsibility, to exercise leadership and accept accountability. There will be greater opportunities to move between divisions and shape a career.
