Peace of mind: buildings insurance

Buildings used by the company and investment properties alike are a fundamental component of a company's assets. This makes it all the more important to have comprehensive buildings insurance which provides protection in the event of a claim. Buildings insurance ensures that companies are always covered in the event of property damage due to storm, fire and other unforeseen events.

Why is buildings insurance advisable?

High water, flooding or burglary can cause substantial damage to a building and have serious implications for a company's continued existence. Ultimately, not only damage to the building itself, but also consequential losses such as the clearance costs or the loss of rental income can jeopardize a company's very survival. Buildings insurance provides protection against heavy financial losses in the event of a claim. As a supplement to the compulsory cantonal buildings insurance which, in most cantons, covers fire and damage by natural forces, Helvetia offers protection against additional risks. In cantons with compulsory cantonal buildings insurance, the boundary stipulations made by the cantons must be observed.
