Zurich Insurance Group created a new business unit designed to help customers address evolving risks.

The global business unit, Zurich Resilience Solutions, is designed to provide services that help compliment traditional insurance products and make a customer’s business more resilience. Offerings from the unit combine risk advisory services and insights with the latest technology and tools, leveraging data and analytics and also third-party collaborations.

“Our people, and in particular our more than 750 risk engineers, work with customers day in, day out, and have intimate knowledge of how they operate their businesses,” Hanno Mijer, the newly appointed Global Head of Zurich Resilience Solutions, said in prepared remarks. “With Zurich Resilience Solutions, we want to leverage [our] wealth of experience, along with insights from rich pools of data and digital capabilities, for the benefit of our customers.”

Mijer has more than 30 years of experience in the insurance industry and brings to the role extensive knowledge and skill in growing businesses and expanding their offerings, as well international consultancy experience, Zurich noted. Mijer joined Zurich in 2007 and most recently served as CEO of Zurich’s Cover-More Group. Mijer reports to Sierra Signorelli, CEO Commercial Insurance, and is based in Zurich.

Zurich Resilience Solutions has already launched a range of services, including Climate Change Resilience Services, Zurich Cyber Security Services and Supply Chain Risk Management Services and will continue to focus on building new capabilities. The insurer said it plans to further invest in expertise, as well as proprietary services and external collaborations to provide customers with differentiated products and services to help mitigate current and future risks.
