Gloria William

Actuarial Analyst Intern – Casualty Underwriting (Armonk, US)

I joined the interns@swissre programme in summer 2015 as a finance intern with the Investment Reporting team in Overland Park. As an intern, I worked on different accounting and data management projects, and also had an opportunity to shadow in claims, reserving, pricing and costing actuary teams. This experience allowed me to better understand the cross-functional operations of the company and inspired me to integrate and learn more about different departments of Swiss Re. I returned in summer 2016 as an actuarial analyst intern in the Casualty Underwriting department in Armonk. In this position, I worked on very interesting, and challenging quantitative and qualitative projects, with very experienced colleagues from different cultures, professional levels and backgrounds. By the end of my internship, I had already fallen in love with every aspect of the company and I was sure that I wanted to work here in the future. I am very excited to be returning to Swiss re in 2017 and join the graduate programme after I graduate from University of Rochester with a degree in Engineering Science.

Group Underwriting (Zurich, CH)

I joined the interns@swissre programme after finishing my master's degree in mathematics at the University of Zurich. As a part of the Underwriting Strategy department, I have been working on multiple different topics. In addition to getting to know the reinsurance business and learning about costing principles, I had the chance to improve my programming skills while organizing a hackathon. I appreciate the many opportunities to develop and learn new things, both while working in my team and when talking to other people, especially other interns I met through the programme. Overall, my internship has been a great experience and I can warmly recommend it to anyone willing to contribute to and be part of a multicultural company.

Kasper Pasanen

Finance Corporate Solutions (Zurich, CH)

I joined Swiss Re in June 2016, after receiving my BSc in Accounting & Finance from London School of Economics and Political Science. I had my internship in the Global Planning & Steering team of Corporate Solutions. Working as an intern provided me with exposure to colleagues around the world and an opportunity to apply my education in real life. I found integrating into the company to be easy and people made me feel welcome from the beginning One of the most valuable aspects of my internship was being given real responsibility over deliverables and consequently feeling like I truly added value to the company.
