Swiss Re Delivers Positive Outlook - Quick Facts

Swiss Re (SSREY.PK) confirmed its over-the-cycle financial targets. The Group reiterated its capital management priorities, focusing on capitalisation and a stable or increasing dividend.

Swiss Re CEO Christian Mumenthaler said: "We are optimistic on the outlook for all of our businesses as we see positive momentum in the underlying earnings power of the Group. We expect that COVID-19 will remain an earnings and not a capital event for the Group, with declining exposures going forward. Our strategy positions Swiss Re for long-term success."
