Swiss Re board to propose larger share repurchase plan

Swiss Re AG's board of directors will ask shareholders to approve up to CHF2.0 billion in share repurchases, which would be about double the size of the reinsurer's recently completed share buyback program.

The repurchases would consist of two CHF1.0 billion tranches, the first of which would commence shortly after the company's 2019 annual general meeting.

The second tranche would be contingent on the group's capital position, specifically if it rises significantly following a successful reduction of the reinsurer's stake in U.K.-based ReAssure.
