Back to The Swiss Life Group


The Swiss Life Group operates in Switzerland, Germany and France, and it has competency centres in Luxembourg, Liechtenstein and Singapore.



Swiss Life Germany is a leading provider of pensions and financial solutions. With multiple award-winning products and qualified advisors, the company is a premium provider in the German market.

We are all growing ever older. Although no one knows what the future holds, we all know we want to lead a self-determined life into old age. This is where Swiss Life Germany assists its customers, with innovative pension solutions and high-carat consulting. If you want to be financially secure in the autumn of your days, and thus remain financially independent, you must begin planning today. And you will need a dependable partner at your side. That is precisely what Swiss Life in Germany has been for 150 years – and why it is considered one of the most experienced providers of pension solutions in the German market.

Our customers enjoy double security. As a part of the Swiss Group, Swiss Life Germany is subject to twofold government oversight – in Germany via the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) as well as in Switzerland, where it is overseen by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority FINMA. Our guarantees will remain airtight in future, since they are secured over the long term: We can meet our obligations even if interest rates remain low.

Innovative pension solutions for private and corporate clients

Under the Swiss Life brand the company offers private and corporate clients flexible insurance products and services in pensions saving and financial security. Its core competencies in this domain are insuring staff including long-term care needs as well as private and occupational pensions with contemporary guarantee concepts. As a leading broker insurer, Swiss Life Germany depends for its sales on a close collaboration with independent intermediaries – brokers, multiple agents, financial services providers and banks. We serve our business partners locally with a service network spanning the entire country. Founded in 1866, Swiss Life's German branch has its head office in Garching bei München and employs a staff of some 700, including subsidiaries.
