If you’ve never heard of Swiss Re, we wouldn’t be all that surprised, as it’s easy not to be aware of the reinsurance business. But think of all the risks the world faces today: from natural disasters to climate change, from ageing populations to pandemics. These are precisely the issues that reinsurance tackles every single day. Our business at Swiss Re is to transform global risks into opportunities.
Most of our work at Swiss Re is concerned with reinsurance. Put simply, it’s insurance for insurance companies. But, of course, it isn’t that simple. It’s a hugely complex and fascinating business that draws on insights from every scientific discipline. Many of the risks the world faces today are far too great to be borne by insurance companies alone. Only by sharing the risk with reinsurers like Swiss Re can they continue to offer cover against these huge risks and keep prices at affordable levels.
Swiss Re was established in 1863 and in 2007 Swiss Re Bratislava became a part of it. Since then we have managed to grow rapidly, and our Bratislava office currently has about 700 employees. At this office, we provide business services in the areas of technical accounting, finance, asset management and other reinsurance related support services.
