Baloise Group (Bâloise Holding AG) is a Swiss insurance group with headquarters in Basel. At the end of 2019, it had 7,646 employees and is the third-largest Swiss all-industry insurance provider for private individuals and companies.
The best possible customer service, combined with innovative products and services, makes Baloise the first choice for people who want to feel simply safe. Located at the heart of Europe, with its Head Office in Basel, the Baloise Group is a provider of prevention, pension, assistance and insurance solutions. Its core markets are Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.
In Switzerland, Baloise Insurance works together with Baloise Bank SoBa as a specialised financial services provider. The combination of an insurance company and bank, which is unique in Switzerland, provides customers with all-round consultation and solutions tailored to their needs.
Baloise Asset Management (BAM) accommodates the growing demand of the Group and of third-party customers for high-quality financial products and qualified as well as responsible portfolio management, while strengthening the positioning of Baloise as a leading financial services provider in Switzerland.
For Baloise, sustainable development means much more than simply securing our own business activities as an insurer, bank and asset manager – we want to offer our employees secure workplaces and to not only accept social change but also actively contribute to it. After all, we want to be part of a liveable future for all.
Joining the UN Environment’s Principles for Sustainable Insurance Initiative will strengthen our ability to do so since the principles provide guidance for the whole industry which makes joint actions and efforts possible. For Baloise joining the PSI after becoming signatory for the PRI is a logical consequence which demonstrates our commitment to play an active role in sustainable development.
