To Make a Report

This Whistleblowing Hotline is externally hosted. It gives you the choice to report in writing via this web form or orally by phone. All calls are free of charge, however, international roaming charges, or minutes of use if calling from a mobile phone may apply. The phone numbers you can dial are displayed after selecting the relevant location. The information you provide will be sent to Swiss Re in a completely confidential manner.

Welcome to the Swiss Re Whistleblowing Hotline

Swiss Re is committed to maintaining the highest standards of honesty and accountability. We therefore encourage you to talk openly to your line manager, Human Resources contact for employment issues, and Compliance contact for non-employment related issues, if you know or suspect that someone inside Swiss Re or connected with Swiss Re is acting illegally, improperly or unethically. We understand that it is not always easy to report your concerns; there may be some hesitation to do so out of loyalty and other concerns. To make you feel more at ease if you are faced with this situation, Swiss Re has selected EthicsPoint, a reporting tool run by an independent company, to provide you with this Whistleblowing Hotline. The service, available 24-hours per day in several languages, allows you to report via the phone or in writing through this website.

Swiss Re treats all reports of misconduct very seriously. We will respond to every report we receive, and will keep all reports in confidence.

What to report?

We encourage you to report any suspected misconduct, whether by managers, employees, clients, suppliers, contractors or other agents connected with Swiss Re. To help you decide if you should make a report, please read the guidance in the Whistleblowing Hotline FAQs.

How to report?

Swiss Re strives to foster a culture of openness, trust and transparency and different channels are at your disposal for reporting cases of suspected misconduct, including this Whistleblowing Hotline. Please refer to the Whistleblowing Hotline FAQs for a complete list of reporting channels and to the Quick Reference Guide for a step-by-step explanation on how to report via the Whistleblowing Hotline.

Protection against retaliation

Swiss Re prohibits retaliatory action against individuals who report suspected misconduct in good faith in accordance with internal standards. Disciplinary action will be taken against any Swiss Re employee who takes retaliatory action in contravention of this prohibition.

False reporting

Please note that it is unacceptable for an individual to file a report knowing it to be false. Malicious reporting could result in disciplinary and/or legal consequences.

Additional information

Due to data protection requirements, the Whistleblowing Hotline is not available in France and cannot be used to report misconduct that occurs in France. Individuals wishing to report misconduct in France are therefore encouraged to use the other reporting channels listed in the Whistleblowing Hotline FAQs.
