We build our strategy on a customer-centric partnership model with our life and non-life clients. Helvetia has achieved a preferred status with our market partners through continuity and consistency and by being highly responsive and reliable. Our aim is to engage across multiple business lines and to be a strong and valuable reinsurance franchise.
We want to raise our profile. Enhancing our position in Europe, the Middle East and North America and expanding in particular in the fast-growing Asian and in the Latin American markets will support our ambition to create a balanced and diversified portfolio of geographically independent risks.
Expanding and deepening our product offering will build lasting value for our clients, shareholders and staff. We are enthusiastic about staying a leading follow reinsurer in property, casualty and specialty treaty business and showing flexibility in engaging in proportional and non-proportional solutions. At the same time, we are excited to make new steps towards a clearer offering of natural catastrophe capacities, to engage more in specialty casualty as well as credit & surety and to start to write biometric life reinsurance treaties.
We pay particular attention to the qualifications, experience and commitment of our staff who will listen carefully to the needs of our clients and who have the authority and competence to engage with our partners in the global reinsurance market. Expert underwriting, professional actuarial services and efficient technical accounting remain key to our success. A lean and efficient organization and a low management expense ratio will support our ambition to achieve profitable and long-term growth. We will also continue to digitalize our processes to make us fit for the future.
Our Swiss tradition for writing treaty business based on the values of stability, respect, responsibility and honesty make us proud and ready for our next strategic period. We want to delight our customers on their journey of risk transfer and capital optimization.
