Swiss Re announced that it was “adding four specialized tools to the Swiss Re Portal, the company’s Internet-based gateway to its e-business initiatives,” for its North American clients. Launched last October, it provides users with access to industry information and details Swiss Re’s services.

The announcement stated that the new offerings would include:

– Access to Swiss Re’s publications targeting North America, including archived editions of Market Recap and review, two publications that look at Swiss Re and the reinsurance market in North America

-Recommendations of key insurance industry-related websites, updated on a regular basis
– Statistics on specific client contacts
– A schedule of Swiss Re and industry events

Craig Zottola, Swiss Re’s Deputy Leader of e-business solutions for North America stressed that, “Knowledge and information have replaced capital and labor as the primary basis of competitive advantage.” He indicated that making Swiss Re’s vast amount of information more widely available to its clients through the improved portal is one of the most effective ways of transferring this information and meeting “the multiple needs of our clients.”
