Agriculture, including Livestock, Aquaculture and Forestry is the largest industry in the world. Its market participants include farmers, input providers, food processors, transportation, trading, and many more. Every one of them is exposed to a spectrum of risks. In order to better serve this market Swiss Re has a team of 18 agricultural reinsurance underwriters world-wide. The focus of this team is traditional agricultural reinsurance on a global basis. Additionally, the team works closely with Swiss Re's Environmental & Commodity Markets and Swiss Re's Corporate Clients teams allowing for cross-selling and product innovation. The close cooperation with the Environmental & Commodity Markets team enables Swiss Re also to combine agricultural expertise with execution capability in weather and soft commodity markets. Cooperation with Corporate Clients allows Swiss Re to develop market industry specific solutions for corporate clients.

Further growth of the Aquaculture business is expected mainly triggered by a strong demand due to the growing world population and a shift to a more healthy diet. Swiss Re wants to be part of this business development by providing reinsurance solutions allowing the aquaculture sector to be a sustainable and financially healthy industry to fulfill its task to provide high quality seafood to their customers.
