Chilean Network Partner Cruz del Sur and the Swiss Life Network celebrated the renewal of their Network Agreement in Santiago de Chile on May 24, 2007. Over one hundred clients, brokers and employees participated in the celebration, whose aim was to revitalize the successful business partnership started in 2002.
Following a welcome from Cruz del Sur CEO Mikel Uriarte, Margrit Schmid, Head of Swiss Life Network, explained why increasing numbers of multinational companies are having to deal pro-actively with employee benefits today:
- more responsibility is being shifted away from social security and onto employers and individuals;
- in the battle to capture and hold onto talent, attractive employee benefit solutions are a decisive factor.

Multinational companies need to team up with a partner with a worldwide presence and that offers employee benefits as its core business. A partner – such as the Swiss Life Network - with the local and global know-how and experience to cope with the many complex issues faced by multinational companies and their subsidiaries.

Following addresses from Germán Pacheco, Director Corporate Clients Cruz del Sur and Daniel Dubach, Regional Manager Swiss Life Network, the high point of the event was the signing ceremony renewing the Network Agreement between Swiss Life and Cruz del Sur.

Chile is an important and growing life insurance market, and has the highest per capita expenditure in Latin America. The Swiss Life Network is proud to cooperate with Seguros Cruz del Sur as a valuable local Network Partner. Swiss Life Network’s aim is to build mutually-rewarding long-term relationships not only with our clients but also with our Network Partners. Both the Swiss Life Network and Cruz del Sur have dedicated specific resources to their relationship, in order to ensure the success of the partnership and the satisfaction of our clients.
