As a competent partner in research and consulting, we contribute to scientifically clarify, present challenges and exploration of issues in the insurance industry. The overarching goal is to always use these studies for the benefit of insurance customers or companies and to set the course for the sustainable development of the insurance industry.
The Institute for Risk & Insurance enjoys the support of the Swiss Insurance Association.
