Why the reinsurance world loves Switzerland

Recently is would seem that everyone in the reinsurance world has been relocating operations to Switzerland.

So what is the attraction? Solvency II? The tax regime?

We at Reinsurance Towers think that's just not fun enough so here are our top reasons that we think the reinsurers just aren't telling you about:

1) The Alps. Good to look at but more importantly, just the place to unwind with some skiing after a hard January renewals season

2) Hornussen. A cross between baseball and golf. It's a bit like trying to catch golf balls flying through the air at 300kph

3) The schnapps. Nom nom nom

4) The cool mountain air. With the UK and eastern States in the middle of a sweltering heat wave these past few weeks it sounds good to us

5) Martina Hingis and Roger Federer - not too hard on the eye and apparently pretty good at tennis too

6) Alpine horns and yodeling, much more fun than you'd think - yodelayeeeooo
