Dealing with risks in a professional way is part of Helvetia’s daily business. We provide our expertise and practical solutions to reduce risks and to protect people and their individual life plans and needs. By doing so, we create added value for society and the economy. At the same time, we find ourselves in a dynamic environment where we are not only faced with natural catastrophes but also new and complex risks. Helvetia has been taking sustainability risks into account for a long time, such as the violation of human and labour rights, as well as megatrends like increasing energy use and a lack of water.
The risk landscape has fundamentally changed in past years. Risk awareness is characterised by social, ecological and economic megatrends and sustainability risks, along with globalisation. They often include qualitative aspects whose financial effects are not very clear and where it is generally more difficult to estimate the probability of occurrence. Anyone who monitors these developments can identify extensive, future-oriented opportunities and risks at an early stage and use them to their own advantage in the long term.
