Morningstar | Swiss Re Full-Year 2018: Outlook Remains Uncertain for Corporate Solutions

Swiss Re reported net income for full-year 2018 of CHF 420 million post CHF 3.0 billion of large claims. This is well below our long-term estimate for the long-term earnings of the business. While the net income number includes USD 600 million for a U.S. GAAP accounting change impact, we are lowering our fair value estimate to CHF 84.0 to account for a generally lower level of pricing improvement within non-life reinsurance and a remaining poor environment for corporate solutions. We maintain our no-moat rating. The property and casualty combined ratio of 104 percent is equal to 2011, a terri...

Morningstar | Previously an Overly Financially Engineered Company, Swiss Returns to Solid Underwriting Business

Swiss Re is a well-capitalised reinsurer, but we have reservations regarding its competitive positioning and growth.Swiss Re has a history of higher risk appetite, having been more involved in Post-Level Term and Yearly Renewable Term episodes than most. The business also went through high levels of risk engineering leading up to the financial crisis and this ultimately led to a capital raise. The two most recent management teams have been better, and the business is looking for growth in its primary commercial insurance unit, corporate solutions. Corporate solutions is expanding beyond its tr...

Previously an Overly Financially Engineered Company, Swiss Returns to Solid Underwriting Business

Swiss Re reported net income for the first nine months of 2018 that came in at $1.1 billion; this was after the impact of $1.6 billion of claims burden from natural catastrophes and large man-made disasters.

Excluding this impact, net income was $1.2 billion. While these net income figures are below our estimates, we don't ...
