Pan­dem­ic risks must be borne and man­aged in a col­lab­o­ra­tive man­ner

The coronavirus pandemic has affected the individual insurance lines to different degrees over the past year.


Large risks ex­plained in brief

Why can’t a pandemic be insured by private insurers alone? Our latest explanatory video shows the reasons. 

Forward-looking solutions – with the SIA

The Swiss Insurance Association (SIA) represents the interests of the private insurance industry at national and international level. The association comprises around 70 primary insurers and reinsurers employing a workforce of 47,000 people in Switzerland. Overall, the member companies of the SIA account for around 85 per cent of insurance premiums generated in the Swiss market. This makes the insurance industry and, as a result, the SIA a major force in the Swiss economy. Private insurers are therefore committed to the successful development of the areas they operate in, both in business and in social and political terms, meaning that they assume economic responsibility.
