Helvetia was founded in 1858 and is one of the oldest reinsurers in the world. Helvetia has stood for reliable insurance and reinsurance services for almost 160 years. We are one of the three founding companies of the Swiss Reinsurance Company in Zurich, Switzerland who signed its first reinsurance contract ever with Helvetia in 1863.

For almost 160 years Helvetia has maintained a small but successful reinsurance portfolio and thus counts amongst the oldest reinsurers in Europe. The insurance carrier is Helvetia Swiss Insurance Company Ltd. While the reinsurance activities focused on fire back-to-back transactions until the mid-1990s, the reinsurance book has since developed into a well diversified worldwide portfolio.

Helvetia is focused on non-life Property, Casualty and Specialty (such as Aviation and Agriculture) proportional and non-proportional treaty business. Helvetia aims to achieve operational excellence and profitable growth through an experienced and disciplined underwriting workforce supported by a strong actuarial team. The ambition is to be a reliable and proficient partner and to engage across multiple lines of business of carefully selected insurers.
