Un­want­ed phone calls in the name of the SIA – who are they re­al­ly from?

The Swiss Insurance Association (SIA) does not sell any insurance. Self-professed insurance advisors who claim to be from the SIA and offer insurance solutions by phone have no connection to the SIA.

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, which together employ 46’000 people in Switzerland. The member companies of the SIA account for around 85 percent of the premiums generated in the Swiss market. As a major force in the Swiss economy, the insurance industry assumes economic responsibility at business, social and political level wherever key success factors of its locations are at risk.
