Closure of shareholders securities accounts with Zurich Insurance Group Ltd

Due to increasing complexity of regulatory environment and numerous tax agreements Zurich is unfortunately no longer able to offer shareholders a securities account for registered Zurich shares

The increasingly complex regulatory environment and the numerous tax agreements between Switzerland and foreign countries are making it more and more difficult to manage securities accounts. The regulatory and processing requirements which must be complied with in this respect have significantly increased, with the result that Zurich is unfortunately no longer able to offer this service.

Shareholders which have deposited shares of Zurich Insurance Group Ltd registered in their name in a securities account operated by SIX SAG Ltd on behalf of Zurich for safe custody, free of charge will be informed about the details of the closure proceedings personally approximately mid March.

Should you have any questions relating to the closure of your securities account, please write to: or phone +41 (0)44 625 22 55

We regret that we will no longer be able to offer you the service of an individual securities account in the future and thank you for your understanding.
