What sets us apart

  • A hub for insurtech and innovation: Generali Switzerland has successfully promoted topics such as open innovation and corp-ups (cooperation between corporations and start-ups) through its Innovation Garage. Since 2019, the Innovation Garage has been operating as an independent company under the name House of Insurtech Switzerland (HITS).
  • We’re taking on the banks: In 2018, we were the first insurer in Switzerland to launch a completely digital and flexible pension product – our digital pillar 3a.
  • Everything from a single source: Thanks to our sales cooperation with ÖKK, we also offer our customers health insurance.
  • “Diamond” status for our IT: In 2019, we received the Diamond Star IT Innovation Award for our state-of-the-art Connection Platform. IT integration is a core competence in the area of technology. Diversity and openness towards external partners and emerging start-ups are essential for the success of a company.
  • Insurance on a daily basis: Our own start-up company LINGS has set up an “on-demand” insurance policy. Items such as camera equipment or bicycles can be insured with a single click. If necessary, for just one day.
  • Whatever drives you. Run for it: Since 2017, Generali has been promoting running. The fastest Swiss marathon runner, Tadesse Abraham, is our brand ambassador. Together, we motivate people to live a healthy and active life.
  • People helping people: We are committed to “The Human Safety Net”, a global movement initiated by the Generali Group to support disadvantaged people. The programmes address a variety of societal challenges, but all share the same objective: to foster human potential.
  • “Musigg i dä Schwiiz” [music in Switzerland]: Generali has teamed up with Bligg, one of Switzerland’s most famous dialect musicians. Their shared interest in authenticity and proximity to customers and the public brought them together.
