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 75 primary insurers and reinsurers, which together employ 47,700 people in Switzerland and a further 100,000 abroad. The member companies of the SIA account for more than 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.
