A pillar of the economy
The Swiss private insurers are major employers, significant taxpayers and among the most important investors both in Switzerland and abroad. They assume and cover companies’ and private individuals’ financial risks. Therefore, insurance companies are an important mainspring of the Swiss economy. They recognise their economic responsibility by leveraging their competency and their capacities primarily for the benefit of their county, Switzerland.
A viable framework is therefore not only important to the insurers themselves, but also to the individuals and enterprises in our country, not to forget its capabilities for innovation. This is what the SIA works for.
