Scaling the Heights

Our saga to date tells of a historic journey of exponential growth and diversification. At inception, we focused on building capacity while setting a tone and an ethos. Very rapidly, we were making inroads regionally and building scale. And last year, Saudi Re recorded phenomenal growth and achieved industry-leading excellence regionally. In the years ahead, we have set our sights on scaling the heights in the international sphere, embracing greater diversification as we go.

Our Sustainability Approach

Our commitment to sustainability is highlighted by the fact that we were the first Middle Eastern reinsurer to publish a sustainability report. Our sustainability framework has been developed with a focus on integrating ESG factors into our strategies, plans, and processes.

Our Future Outlook

We have weaved a deeply thought-out strategy toward 2026 with a clear vision to “Evolve Saudi Re into a diverse and strong top 30 global reinsurer, contributing to the growth of the Kingdom’s economy”. Our strategic objectives foster local and international growth and are supported by the following pillars:


Scale, which relates to increasing the economic scale, earnings and capital base, and building resilience to loss events.


We aim at diversification, both geographically and also in terms of risk type, in which we endeavor to maintain a well balanced portfolio.

Technical and operational capabilities

We continually seek to develop our capabilities. These encompass technical capabilities, risk management capabilities, technological and operational capabilities, and human capital.


We value strong relationships, especially with cedants, brokers, partners, and regulators. Our corporate brand is also a strong factor in our relationship building.

Financial soundness

Financial soundness is also a key facet in the robustness of our business. We need to retain our technical profitability, capital adequacy and ensure favorable returns on investment.
