Awards 2012: Best reinsurer, longevity/mortality risk transfer: Swiss Re

Best reinsurer, longevity/mortality risk transfer: Swiss Re

Swiss Re at 30 St Mary Axe

Swiss Re has been a pioneer when it comes to the global issue of funding longer lives and has established a formidable track record in delivering longevity solutions.

In May 2012, the reinsurer completed a longevity insurance transaction with a pension fund of the Dutch company AkzoNobel, the largest global paints and coatings company and a major producer of speciality chemicals. In this transaction, Swiss Re agreed to cover the longevity risk on pensioner liabilities of £1.4 billion.
