About Swiss RE

The Swiss Reinsurance Company was founded in 1863 in response to the great fire of Glarus, Switzerland. Nearly two-thirds of the town were lost to the 1861 fire, and the event proved that Switzerland was not equipped to provide insurance coverage on such a scale. Nearly 150 years later, in 2006, the company acquired GE Insurance Solutions, making it the world’s largest reinsurer. Today, Swiss RE has offices in more than 25 countries. In the U.S., it is headquartered in Armonk, New York. 


Swiss RE offers a variety of insurance products such as reinsurance, health insurance, life insurance, property insurance, and business insurance. Swiss RE has an internship program for students and recent graduates that provides hands-on experience, as well as the opportunity to build a professional network. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Swiss RE now conducts all interviews over video services such as Zoom. Prospective employees will find openings in areas such as software engineering, data science, marketing, analytics, and more.


Swiss RE likes to lead by example and is committed to minimize its environmental impact. The company states that one of its main objectives is to bring its CO2 emissions to net zero by 2030. In 2019, Swiss RE developed a 10-year plan to help reduce its operational emissions, which includes limiting air travel and increasing energy efficiency across all of its operations.
