“After significantly growing our business in Asia in his first years with the company, he was instrumental in ensuring that our reinsurance businesses are in a strong position today. Moses was the architect behind our Reinsurance Solutions unit, which is gaining traction, and played a key role in making the group’s 2023 reorganisation a success,” said Mumenthaler.

“He also led the strategic review of iptiQ, which resulted in the announcement today that Swiss Re plans to withdraw from iptiQ over time. On behalf of the entire executive team, I would like to thank Moses for his exceptional leadership, dedication and commitment. We wish him all the best for the future.”
