Our bold journey of growth

“Our ‘Simply Safe’ strategic phase is based on our excellent track record over the past decade: one of the most profitable non-life portfolios in Europe, strong market positions, state-of-the-art IT systems, forward-looking capital management and an attractive dividend policy. On the basis of these strengths, Baloise intends to become even more attractive in the eyes of its employees, customers and shareholders. Our greatest conviction is that only satisfied employees can inspire customers, who in turn form the basis of an attractive investment from a shareholder’s point of view.”

Gert De Winter, CEO der Baloise Group
