New ideas, proven strengths

Agile, specialised, reliable – NewRe is your responsive and flexible partner for reinsurance. With skilled employees and a forward-looking attitude, we offer standard and tailored solutions to cover your risks.

With NewRe, you get the best of both worlds: the agility and creativity of a mid-sized reinsurer coupled with the considerable financial solidity of a member of the Munich Re corporate group. As a professional underwriter of European property and casualty business, we can deliver the knowledge and experience needed to develop the right solution. In addition, our experts think beyond traditional models and create tailored structured reinsurance solutions that can enhance your capital management and build your corporate value. On a global scale, we also focus on specialised life reinsurance solutions – in particular on asset protection solutions (e.g. variable annuity reinsurance) and structured life reinsurance concepts.

Focused strategy, responsive focus.

Our strategy is clear, but not rigid. In fact, swift and effective response to client needs and market developments is a key component of our entrepreneurial approach. With multilingual underwriters specialising in lines of business and individual countries, we are in a strong position to develop unique skill sets and stay closely in touch with each segment of the European market.

Because NewRe is staffed by experts in their respective fields, we concentrate on doing what we do best – and avoid “me-too” business. In our defined areas of expertise, we seek to underwrite meaningful shares and act as a significant partner for the client. To ensure optimum risk assessment and management, we complement our own internal modelling with selected vendor models.


Founded in Zurich in 1926, NewRe has been headquartered in Geneva since 1940. In 1988, NewRe became part of the Munich Re Group, the world’s leading reinsurer. With the goal to diversify its non-life reinsurance business, it opened an office for Financial Solutions Life business in Zurich in 2007. Based on the expansion of NewRe’s strategic scope within the Munich Re Group, NewRe relocated its complete operations to Zurich in 2010.
