Protecting your world
The Zurich Group has protected families and businesses since its establishment in Switzerland in 1872.
In Australia our heritage dates back to 1920, with the formation of the Commonwealth General Assurance Corporation, an insurer which was acquired by Zurich in 1961.
Around the world we employ more than 60,000 people in 170 countries; locally our combined life and general insurance businesses employ more than 1200 Australians, based in offices in every capital city and several regional centres.
All our customer service staff are Australian based, giving you peace of mind and easier access.
We have a strong commitment to the communities we serve. At a global level Zurich is one of the single biggest investors in green bonds, investing more than $2 billion in this growing area. Green bonds allow us to generate market-level returns, while having a positive impact on the world around us. The proceeds of green bonds are used for projects that mitigate climate change, help communities adapt to the consequences of climate change or generate other measurable environmental benefits.
Locally our major community partner is The Smith Family, with whom we have teamed up to deliver their Learning for Life program. This program provides emotional, practical and financial support to help disadvantaged children and young people with their education.
But of course what matters most is how this global strength and reach turns into quality, affordable cover for you and your family. In this respect, you can relax, with the peace of mind of knowing your life insurer is recognised as one of the best in the Australian market when it comes to offering outstanding value for money. This was affirmed recently when we were unveiled as the joint winner of the Canstar Five Star Award for Outstanding Value in Life Insurance.
So congratulations; with Zurich you can rest assured the safeguarding of your financial future is in very safe hands.
