FRANKFURT, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Swiss Re on Thursday posted a 23% year-on-year rise in net profit in the first nine months, despite big claims from natural and man-made catastrophes.

Net profit was $1.34 billion during the period, up from $1.09 billion a year earlier. Analysts had expected a net profit of $1.37 billion, according to Reuters calculations and data from Refinitiv. (Reporting by Tom Sims Editing by Tassilo Hummel)
