New Reinsurance Company Ltd. (NewRe) is a Swiss reinsurer founded in Zurich in 1926. In 1988, NewRe became part of Munich Re Group, one of the world’s leading reinsurers.

With NewRe, you get the best of both worlds: the efficiency and creativity of a medium-sized reinsurer coupled with the exceptional financial solidity that comes with being a member of Munich Re Group.

Our determination to find appropriate reinsurance solutions for our clients, our thorough market know-how and our swift response times are what make NewRe a preferred reinsurer. We see the changing market environment, emerging risks and increased complexity as opportunities to develop our business together with you.

During its long history, NewRe has constantly moved with the times and with client needs. Whereas in the past we focused mainly on traditional property and casualty reinsurance, in recent years we have become a leading underwriter of structured life and non-life reinsurance. Moreover, we now offer weather derivatives and parametric solutions, which provide a quick pay-out in response to triggers like earthquakes and hurricanes. We have also successfully specialised in variable annuity reinsurance and capital management solutions for life reinsurance.
