Zurich - Life Insurance & Income Protection
While many people identify Zurich Insurance with Switzerland, the Australian division of the company is thoroughly rooted in Australia. The Australian company was originally known as the Commonwealth General Assurance Corporation when it was established in 1920, and only became a part of Zurich Financial Services Group in 1961.
Between 2010 and 2012, Zurich Financial Services Australia was awarded for its life insurance products by Canstar every year. Zurich also won best life insurer of the year from AFA/Plan for Life for 2010.
While Zurich Insurance Group has a partnership with the Rainforest Alliance on an international level, the Australian branch currently has no formal environmental responsibility policies. However, it does source one quarter of its energy from renewable power sources in Australia.
