Dr. Rolf Tanner

Dr. Rolf S. Tanner is the vice president of the Advisory Board of the European Futurists Conference Lucerne.


Rolf Tanner is head of Socio-Political Risk Research at Swiss Re, the world's no. 2 in reinsurance. Socio-Political Risk Research covers a wide brief, including the detection and analysis of long-term trends from a sociological and political science point of view. Of course, the risk aspects predominate in such analysis and the focus is on contributing research outcomes to future insurance solutions.


Before joining Swiss Re, Rolf was a partner with a consulting boutique in St. Gallen, Switzerland, and before that a country risk analyst at a major Swiss bank. He studied history and political science in Zurich and Geneva, and followed up with post-graduate studies at Georgetown University, Washington, and Australian National University, Canberra. He also holds an Executive MBA degree.


Rolf lives near Zurich and enjoys reading and smoking fine Cuban cigars.
