Insure building risks optimally

Building property insurance against fire and damage from natural forces and building liability insurance represent the minimum coverage needed for your company building. Supplement this minimum coverage with additional insurance options and modify the amount of your insurance accordingly.

Building property insurance

The umbrella term "building property insurance" includes all insurance types that cover property damage. A whole series of different modules can be combined.

  • Fire insurance incl. events caused by natural forces (excl. earthquakes): All buildings in Switzerland must be covered by fire insurance unless they are in the canton of Geneva, Valais or Ticino.
  • Water insurance (incl. rental income)
  • Earthquake insurance
  • Building technology failure
  • Extended coverage in case of vandalism, rodents or vehicle impact
  • Renovations and conversions up to CHF 100,000
  • Burglary insurance
  • Glass breakage insurance


Buildings are usually insured at replacement value. In order that this amount can be regularly updated in accordance with the construction cost index and to ensure that no underinsurance develops over the years, the inclusion of the automatic adjustment of the amount of insurance is recommended.
