Zurich launches international solutions for mid-market businesses

November 13, 2018

- opens up its international expertise to more customers and brokers

Zurich today announces the launch of its international programmes range for medium-sized businesses.  
The launch provides the growing number of mid-sized UK businesses which trade in other countries, access to the full breadth of Zurich’s international expertise - helping them and their brokers manage risks simply and effectively.  
Customers and brokers will benefit from one point of contact to help them manage their risks, while being able to tap into local expertise in any other markets they have a presence in. Zurich’s International Programmes can help with advice and solutions on everything from tax, regulation, claims and underwriting.

This expansion of Zurich’s International Programmes also brings the insurer’s popular ‘My Zurich’ app to more customers – so they can easily manage their policies online as well as providing them with insight on key international risk issues.  

For additional support with compliance, brokers and customers can choose to access Zurich’s online multinational insurance application which provides comprehensive guidance on local insurance regulations and tax requirements around the world.  

Hayley Robinson, Zurich UK’s Chief Underwriting Officer said, "We know from our own research that many of the UK’s smaller and medium sized companies are accidentally becoming multi-national as their customers can access their products and services online from anywhere. 

"We have long been recognised as leaders in the market for our ability to handle complex, multi-national risks for our larger customers and now we are expanding this expertise to medium sized businesses. 
“Trying to navigate the different tax and regulatory systems can be a headache. With our global footprint, Zurich is perfectly placed to support businesses of all sizes in over 210 countries. That we can support them quickly and efficiently is key and so we are fully geared up to help with everything from setting up policies simply, right through to acting promptly and being on hand when they need to make a claim wherever necessary.”
