I've been a member for ages too and I hadn't heard about this particular one. I have Generali car insurance, it seems competitive on Comparis.ch. I have not had to make a claim and only have minimum cover but staff seem helpful. Thanks for the heads up!


Dear P42, this is not about Generali assurance company which you use for car or apartment insurance here in Switzerland. This is Generali withhead Office in Guernsey, Generali Wolrldwide Insurance, long investment plan called Generali Vision.

Re: WARNING Generali Vision and investment advisers

One guy has contacted me recently and directly asked for meeting where I have to pass him a list of my former colleagues from big company where I worked before. He was very assertive. But I could not find any reason why should I help him. They are very aggressive and insisting. Why nobody warned me when one of them came to the office and convinced me to set up this plan??? ((( This is the reason I decided to participate and warn others to think 2,3,4 times before starting this gamble.

Re: WARNING Generali Vision and investment advisers

Interestingly, the same issue is discussed in detail toytowngermany.com, the sister site of the English forum. The advice seems of very high quality, but mostly related to German law:

Interesting information; all about German law of course as you say.

For people who bought policies here and want to cancel then I do not find a Generali International registered on the Swiss FINMA site to sell life insurance, might be worth checking direct with FINMA?
Also to check if the sales person was correctly registered?

I still get called maybe twice per month at work from these financial cold callers, obviously getting my details from LinkedIn or whatever.. They call reception/security and claim to be from another office to get put through.. Then say some friendly crap like 'oh hey john, long time no speak, I met your colleague bob last week, he said i should call you...'

I think I'm on the shit list of the company that normally promotes this "product".

Following the usual cold call, I asked them who they were regulated by and if they could provide their FINMA registration number, as I was on the FINMA website and wanted to check. I also "politely queried" why they would call someone working for a financial institution at their work to try and sell them financial advice and pointed out that I understood the terms and conditions of what they were trying to flog.

Despite getting regular hits on my LinkedIn profile from their researchers, no one has called me for about 18 months now.
