The development of any modern economy is not well defined if its insurance sector is not developed properly. The low rate of interest in the Swiss market is one of the very importantreasons for its growth. It is because of the group life policies that have been introduced in the Swiss life insurance sector.

In 2012, The Swiss Insurance Association welcomes the government’s decision to safeguard the tried-and-trusted system of state old-age and occupational pensions for the long term. Given their interdependence, it is necessary and appropriate to look both sides jointly.

Switzerland’s life insurers, who are providing pension solutions for approximately 150,000 SMEs with a total of about a million employees, will gladly work upon finding appropriate solutions for retirement provision.
