Where people work, mistakes can happen. Whether from negligence or ignorance, as result of material defects or production errors: People and property can be affected. Commercial third-party liability insurance protects a company against the financial consequences that may arise if it unintentionally causes damage to its customers or other external persons.

And this could be practically any company, irrespective of its corporate form: from the self-employed and SMEs to companies of any size.

With directors' and officers' liability insurance from AXA, you and your assets are covered against such outcomes.
Cyber attacks are also increasing every year in Switzerland. Small and medium-sized Swiss enterprises in particular are being increasingly targeted by cyber criminals as they have less money to spend on IT security than large corporations. However, protecting against the risks associated with digital technology is in the interest of every business that operates in the digital world, processes sensitive customer data or depends heavily on reliable access to data and IT infrastructure. There is no such thing as 100% security on the world wide web, but cyber insurance from AXA protects your company against the financial losses a cyber attack might cause.
