On July 6, 2017 the Financial Times reported that Swiss Re has begun to move its entire $130 billion portfolio to ethical indices.  The process will be completed later this year.

According to the article, “Swiss Re says it is the first insurer to base its whole portfolio on ethical principles. Guido Fürer, the chief investment officer, says that in future both internal and external managers of its money will be told to use MSCI’s environmental, governance and social indices, rather than more traditional benchmarks.”
