Insurers pay 1330 francs per second

On average, nearly 1330 francs per second, this is what Swiss private insurers had to pay in 2012 for insurance cases. In total, life insurance and damage payments amounted to 42 billion francs, so 5200 francs per habitant. Premium income reached CHF 31 billion in life insurance and CHF 26 billion in property and casualty insurance. Thus nearly 7100 francs per habitant was spent in Switzerland for private insurance.
