The Art of Underwriting
The human dimension of our business is more important than many would imagine. No matter how many tools and technologies we use, expert judgment and human experience are essential to ensure the quality of our underwriting. The most advanced tool will never replace the intuition of a seasoned underwriter facing a complex risk. And once a decision to underwrite is made, our word and our signature are our bonds.
Throughout history, artists and artisans have followed – or challenged – the trends and tendencies of the day. Likewise, underwriters must learn, imitate and innovate in order to find their own style and create their distinctive approach. At SCOR, we encourage the sharing of doubts and experiences. We believe that by posing questions, we can develop effective responses to the challenges we face – as individuals, as an industry and as a global community.
Experts in calculating risk
Reinsurance requires strong modeling capabilities to assess, quantify and actively manage risks. As reinsurers, we must be able to quickly detect and adapt to any changes in the risk universe. Staying in sync with our environment and attuned to the outside world, and reacting in an informed and responsible way, are prerequisites for our long-term relevance and for making the Group a trusted partner and market leader.
For this we need skilled professionals who can combine theoretical and analytical considerations with empirical experience. SCOR’s experts are at the forefront of risk modeling. Our risk management system is in continual evolution, embracing new technology and achieving greater efficiencies and ease in the generation and use of modeling results. We also invest in fundamental research conducted outside the company, and we support the development of scientific risk management techniques in various disciplines. Since 2011, the SCOR Corporate Foundation has devoted more than EUR 13 million to promoting scientific research.
Shaping the reinsurer of tomorrow
The reinsurance industry is changing rapidly, and the needs of our teams are changing with it.
"Forward 2026", our strategic plan for 2024-2026, underscores our determination to become the reinsurer of tomorrow by enhancing the platform to be future-ready.
We believe we can leverage the power of tech & data to revolutionize the reinsurance ecosystem. By integrating these technologies into our day-to-day business, we’re not just adapting to the digital age – we’re shaping it.
