ERM, which means “Enterprise Risk Management”, is particularly important for an international reinsurer like SCOR. We underwrite risks in virtually every country throughout the world. We assume a very wide range of different types of risks, including mortality, morbidity, property, casualty, and all the risks that come with managing an asset portfolio.

SCOR’s teams are supported by the Group’s network of in-house specialists, whose high level of expertise is recognised by the markets.
