Typically, Actuarys are the best paid with salaries hovering at around $121K; Senior Underwriters, Financial Analysts, and Actuarial Analysts also rank near the top of the list, pulling in about $120K, $70K, and $57K, respectively. Earning only approximately $49K, Underwriting Assistants make less than most people in the company.

Years of Experience

Workers who have been with the company for more than one year but less than five can typically make $53K. By and large, the biggest segment of Swiss Re's workforce (36 percent) have been working for five to nine years and take home $95K annually.


When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck ($85K per year) can be spotted in New York; Fort Wayne (approximately $70K), Armonk (around $70K), and Dallas (about $67K) are the next top-paying cities. Across its U.S. offices, the state of Illinois pays Swiss Re the most — $83K annually on average.

Certifications and Degrees

Monetary compensation comes to $122K for Fellow of the Society of Actuaries, far surpassing the earnings of non-credentialed workers. Becoming a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter can certainly pay off here; those folks make about $122K. Employees who have a Bachelor's Degree make the most here, hauling in around $119K per year.


Employees who count Pricing among their skills tend to enjoy higher pay; the median for this group is approximately $150K. Microsoft Excel also popped up often in the survey as an important skill; two in five of employees surveyed report using it at work. Some other standard skills here are Data Analysis, Insurance, and Financial Analysis.

Benefits and Perks

Paid time off is in short supply here, with only half of workers receiving paid vacation and 29 percent receiving paid sick days. Almost all workers save up for retirement through a 401(k) plan. The vast majority of workers report having health insurance, and a fair portion of workers report having dental coverage. Swiss Re employees also enjoy perks such as life insurance, flexible hours, a subsidized cell phone, and optional telecommute / work from home.
