Swiss Re Group in China
The Swiss Re Group has had a long and rich association with the Chinese insurance industry. As early as 1931, we signed our first fire treaty with China's Taiping Fire and Marine Insurance. In 1973, after the establishment of modern China, Swiss Re signed its first treaty with PICC.
In 1995 Swiss Re opened a reinsurance representative office in Beijing and another in Shanghai in 1996. Then on December 19, 2003, we opened branch in Beijing offering reinsurance support to the life and non-life industries.
Corporate Solutions established a representative office in Shanghai in 2010. With the acquisition of RSA Group's Sun Alliance Insurance (China) Ltd in 2015, we launched Swiss Re Corporate Solutions (China) Ltd to offer innovative, high-quality insurance solutions to individuals and corporations in China and around the globe.
