The future is closer than you think. Cars are getting increasingly connected and automated. In fact, by 2050, many predict that nearly every car will be driverless. Furthermore, car sharing and car pooling apps are slowly changing the mobility ecosystem. Given the important part motor/auto insurance plays in our portfolio, Swiss Re has looked into these trends and subsequently built a new and highly innovative automotive department to provide adequate solutions to insurers and mobility players.
