About us

Bernina Re was launched in 2017 as a Solvency II equivalent Class 3A reinsurer. It was established as a transformer to underwrite traditional reinsurance business for the exclusive benefit of funds managed by Credit Suisse Insurance Linked Strategies Ltd. (Credit Suisse ILS) on a fully collateralized basis.

In 2019 Bernina Re achieved its development into a fully staffed reinsurer, sourcing and underwriting reinsurance business via its head office in Bermuda as well as its branch office in Switzerland.

Established in
a leading reinsurance hub

Bernina Re is headquartered in Bermuda, which has long been a well-known and highly respected global hub for insurance capacity. In particular, reinsurance has been one of the fastest growing sectors in recent years. As one of the top three reinsurance centers in the world, Bermuda is best known for its market-leading position in the property-catastrophe reinsurance sector. Bermuda has made a lot of effort over the last decade to achieve and maintain Solvency II equivalence. It is one of only two jurisdictions worldwide, along with Switzerland, to have this distinction.
