We are part of Zurich Insurance Group, a global insurer that has been successfully managing cross border business for many years, and is headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland where it was founded in 1872. We participate in the UK's Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). This currently means that you, as a Zurich International Portfolio Bond (Zurich IPB) customer, may be entitled to compensation from the FSCS if we are unable to meet our obligations to you.
The impact of Brexit on the FSCS will depend on the terms on which the UK departs from the EU. Following a ‘no-deal’ Brexit, your Zurich IPB policy would not qualify for protection under the FSCS. If, on the other hand, there is a Brexit transition period agreed, then FSCS arrangements would remain in place during the transition period.
If you want more information on the FSCS, you can contact the FSCS helpline on 0800 678 1100 or on +44 207 741 4100, visit the FSCS website at www.fscs.org.uk or write to the FSCS at the following address: PO Box 300, Mitcheldean, GL17 1DY.
