New reference and information system HIS

Apr 1, 2021. Posted in Diverses

Together with seven other non-life insurance companies in Switzerland, Generali General Insurance Ltd. is participating in HIS, the reference and information system launched by SVV Solution AG. The aim of HIS is to prevent fraudulent benefit claims. Every year, insurance companies in Switzerland face an estimated loss of 5-10% of the insurance benefits paid out as a result of fraudulent claims. Ultimately, this cost is covered by all insured persons in their premiums. This is why the insurance industry is combating insurance fraud and protecting the community of insured people.


HIS is limited to motor vehicle insurance (liability and accidental damage), third-party liability insurance (personal and commercial liability) and property insurance (household contents, buildings and commercial). It meets the requirements of the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP).
