Swiss Re Reports Results That Move It Ahead of Our Full-Year Expectations

Henry Heathfield Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Henry Heathfield |

Swiss Re has reported a net loss of $285 million for the first nine months of this year. That means the business is tracking a little better than the $261 million loss that we have forecast for the full year. The loss is ultimately attributable to the property and casualty division and the $2.5 billion of large natural disaster losses that Swiss Re has incurred. These stem from Hurricane Ian, floods in Australia and South Africa, and hailstorms in France. We maintain that reinsurers have a lot of rates to put through to catch up with the rising intensity of natural disasters. Fortunately, with rising yields and declining portfolios, capital has become lighter and that gives these businesses more leverage during renewal periods. The combined ratio so far is 106.1%. That’s a little worse than the 104.4% that we forecast for the full year.

Company Profile SREN

Business Description

Swiss Re was established in 1863 in Zurich. Since then the business appears to have cycled through quite a few strategies. Namely in the early part of the millennium Swiss Re took on an investment banker who eventually led the business. Over the next 10 years CEO Jacques Aigrain built Swiss Re's financial solutions into a powerhouse and helped the company complete its first securitisation, finalised in 2005 for credit reinsurance. This division became a leader for Swiss Re, but then disaster struck during the global financial crisis. Swiss Re mothballed this unit and approved a CHF 5 billion capital raise. Now the business concentrates more fundamentally on property and casualty, life and health reinsurance. Swiss Re also has a good commercial insurance offering named corporate solutions.
