Institute for Risk & Insurance
"The insurance industry is a very dynamic environment. Technological developments together with changes in the environment and in society, as well as in regulatory requirements, affect all areas of the business. With our know-how, we can help insurance specialists and companies to master these multiple challenges."
Daniel Greber, Head of Institute for Risk & Insurance
The Institute for Risk and Insurance is the center of competence for economic and sociological issues in the insurance industry. With our involvement in degree programs and continuing education, we make an important contribution to the professional qualification of specialists in the insurance sector. As a competent partner for research and consulting, we work closely with various institutions in Switzerland and abroad. The Institute for Risk & Insurance enjoys the support of the Swiss Insurance Association.
We offer a wide range of continuing education programs with various programs (MAS, CAS) as well as short continuing education courses covering topical issues. We are also happy to organize tailor-made continuing education programs for internal corporate training purposes.
In our applied research, we focus on the following key areas: the insurance sector, insurance companies, and insurance risks. In our research activities, we benefit from many different partnerships, both in Switzerland and abroad.
The boundaries between research and consulting are not clearly defined for application-oriented issues. For this reason, most of our consulting projects contain aspects of research and vice-versa. We offer consultancy services in the following areas:
- Management of insurance companies
- Personal and professional pension funds
- Actuarial practice
- Marketing & CRM
- Insurance sales
- Process and risk management for insurance companies
Examples of current assignments include market analysis, the preparation of development scenarios, and the creation of a concept for a specific problem.
