Swiss Re Corporate Solutions to establish new Canadian branch as part of restructuring

Armonk, NY (Mar. 1, 2022) – Swiss Re Corporate Solutions has announced it has filed an application with regulators to establish a Canadian branch of North American Specialty Insurance Company (NAS) and transfer operations to that branch, including new and renewal business, from its existing Westport branch.

The establishment of the NAS Canadian branch will further enable Corporate Solutions’ strategic growth by reducing complexity and optimizing capital efficiency. The announcement is part of the Swiss Re Group’s ongoing efforts to streamline the legal entity structure of its North American business.

The NAS branch is expected to be operational in the second half of 2022, subject to Canadian regulatory approval by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), and its name will be changed to Swiss Re Corporate Solutions America Insurance Corporation – Canadian Branch upon receipt of approval from United States regulators.
