In more than 160 years Helvetia has developed out of various Swiss and foreign insurance companies into a successful insurance group with a presence throughout Europe. Constant change – sometimes unforeseen and unwanted, sometimes purposefully sought – characterizes its history.

It has done so by always striving to ensure a good balance between security and entrepreneurial freedom, a fact that is reflected today in its risk management activities. This has allowed Helvetia to maintain its good reputation throughout its history.
