Based on the information exchanged, we support you in updating your insurance and risk concept.

Risk review and assessment – We identify, analyse and assess your risk situation. We work with you to determine the risks for which insurance cover makes sense and which risks could be prevented, minimised or transferred. We then work with you to develop a customised, risk-specific concept for you. The result is a customised risk concept that meets your needs and corresponds to your risk philosophy.

Depending on the type of risk and your insurability, we survey the Swiss insurance market and obtain quotes for the best possible insurance cover.

In accordance with the Insurance Supervision Act (Versicherungsaufsichtsgesetzt, VAG) Art. 45 – The Federal Council brought the revised Insurance Supervision Act (ISA) and the new Supervision Ordinance (SO) into force on January 1, 2006. Insurance intermediaries are now subject to state supervision. This is carried out by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA. Art. 40 ISA defines an insurance intermediary as a person who offers or concludes insurance contracts in the interests of insurance companies or other persons. This includes brokers, brokers, neutral insurance advisors as well as the sales force of insurance companies.
