An overview of the insurance sector

All supervised insurers are required to submit information and data to FINMA on the previous year’s business trends. FINMA then draws up an overview of the industry which it includes in its annual report on the insurance market.

The report on the insurance market is published once a year and contains general information on the market in Switzerland; it also sets out balance sheet and profit and loss data for the industry as a whole.

The figures for the individual lines of business show the trends in premiums, market shares of major companies active on the Swiss market and the development of equity and net annual earnings. For life insurance, the report also covers actuarial and technical results.
