Welcome to the Open Minds dialogue platform


All over the world Swiss Re provides reinsurance, insurance and other ways to transfer the risks of insurance companies, midsize-to-large corporations and public sector clients.

The Open Minds is our dialogue platform. It’s a place to exchange views on the risks we’ll face in the future. Alongside our clients and employees, we invite citizens, organisations and governments to discuss how we can come together to help find answers to some of the world’s biggest challenges.

We launched Open Minds to bring a fresh perspective on dialogue and collaboration.

What are the biggest risks we face?

The world faces many types of risk. Here on the Open Minds dialogue platform, we’ve chosen four burning issues of particular concern to our current generation, and the next.


What on earth is the risk?

Find out about Swiss Re’s global risk perception survey. We asked more than 20,000 people in 19 countries what they thought about the costs of ageing, dealing with food security, managing climate and natural disaster risk, and about sustainable energy.
