Furniture: flow of CHF 18.6 million to customers in Central Switzerland
Profit sharing decreases from the previous year. Premium volume and claims expenses increased again in central Switzerland.
Mobiliar-Versicherung once again lets its customers share in its success this year. In the six cantons of central Switzerland, a total of 18.6 million francs revert to the almost 200,000 insured:
- Lucerne: 8.1 million
- Schwyz: 4.7 million
- Train: 2.4 million
- Ur: 1.7 million
- Obwalden and Nidwalden: 1.7 million
Therefore, the amount is less than in the previous year. At that time, Central Switzerland Mobi customers received a total of 22.8 million francs. The reason for the difference is that last year customers with company insurance received an extraordinary reduction in premiums for the second consecutive time, in addition to the reduction for customers with home or building insurance. Typically, the insurer alternates premium reductions between different insurance companies.
This year, those policyholders who have taken out vehicle or business insurance with Mobiliar will once again benefit. They receive a 10% discount. Customers with travel insurance receive a 20 percent premium reduction. This is the third time in a row that SMEs have benefited. In total, Mobiliar shares its more than two million customers throughout Switzerland with 180 million francs in success.
More than 87,000 claims
As indicated in a statement, the local general agencies increased the volume of premiums in central Switzerland by 4.5 percent (growth from the previous year: five percent). Claims expenses in Central Switzerland in 2021 were around CHF 244 million. It has increased again compared to the previous year, when it was 216.6 million. A large part of this returned to the region in the form of orders, Mobiliar writes. In total, the general agencies recorded more than 87,000 claims.
General agencies in Central Switzerland currently employ 329 people, including 25 trainees. Mobiliar operates 9 of 80 general agencies in Switzerland in the region. (mim)
