Who we are

Kessler is the leading Swiss company in the fields of risk management, insurance and pension fund consulting. Our team, which is based in Switzerland has now grown to 275 staff and manages a good one third of the 500 largest Swiss companies from the services sector, trade, industry and the public sector.

Since it was founded, Kessler has been a family business in the glittering tradition of Swiss entrepreneurship. Our clients see this in the quality of our work, in the relationships of trust they have with their personal contact partners, and in the speed of our decision-making processes.  

Our Business

As their dedicated partner in all risk, insurance and pension issues, we offer our clients customized risk analyses, modern risk financing concepts and optimized insurance solutions. We are also at our clients‘ service if they need legal advice or want assistance in the event of a claim.

Global Network

To ensure that our clients receive the best possible service not only in Switzerland but internationally, Kessler is the Swiss partner of the global Marsh Network since 1998. Headquartered in New York, Marsh is the largest globally active risk manager and insurance broker, with branches in over 100 countries. In addition to sharing client management, the Marsh Network is used to share knowledge. Kessler employees are represented in various industry expert working groups at Marsh. The working groups develop sector-specific solutions, analyze legal and market developments, and are a source of extensive specialist knowledge. This ensures that our employees keep up to date with the latest international developments.

The Marsh network also ensures that our clients have direct access to the full range of services offered by Marsh & McLennan Companies. For further information, visit www.mmc.com.
