Zurich head office move: Information for our customers, partners, brokers and service providers. 

Zurich insurance Europe AG (ZIE), previously call Zurich Insurance plc, has recently relocated it's head office from Ireland to Germany. The move was effected under the EU Mobility Directive as implemented in Ireland under the European Union (Cross-Border Conversions, Mergers and Divisions) Regulations 2023 and did not result in the dissolution or winding up of Zurich as a legal entity or the formation of a new legal entity.

Zurich retained its legal personality and converted into a German stock corporation registered in Frankfurt, Germany and changed its name to “Zurich Insurance Europe AG”.

Please be aware of the following changes:

  • Zurich is authorised by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFIN) and is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland for conduct of business rules.

  • Zurich remains fully committed to the Irish market and will continue to provide the same insurance services to our brokers and customers from our Dublin and Wexford offices.

  • Our customers are unaffected by the relocation. There is no impact to their policies, cover or claims with us. No action is required by customers. Customers will continue to be insured by the same insurance company.

  • There is no impact on Zurich Group’s life assurance business in Ireland.  You do not need to take any action in relation to any contract you may have with Zurich Life Assurance plc. 

  • Zurich's registered office address in Ireland will not change. Although our Head Office has moved to Germany, Zurich will retain a branch in Ireland at the same address at Zurich House, Frascati Road, Blackrock, County Dublin, A94 X9Y3.

  • Zurich's postal address in Ireland will remain as PO Box 78, Wexford, Ireland.

We have been proudly protecting customers across Ireland for 70 years, and our teams in Dublin and Wexford will continue to protect your world into the future.
