Commercial Property Insurance

What is Commercial Property Insurance?

Commercial property insurance protects your financial interest in your building, equipment, stock and other assets, the very things that enable you to deliver the products or services to your customers that generate business income and provide jobs. That’s why this coverage can be one of the most important business insurance products your enterprise can purchase. Commercial property insurance policies can also include vital business interruption coverage features that will help you maintain your business income stream should a loss temporarily halt your operations.

A holistic approach to commercial property insurance also pairs Risk Engineering services that help reduce losses with insurance coverages designed to help manage your total cost of risk. Zurich Risk Engineering professionals understand your business, the risks you face and approaches to reduce and mitigate your risks through business property insurance.

Why Zurich?

Zurich takes a holistic approach to commercial property protection because the better you know your risk exposures and plan for them, the better opportunity you have to help minimize the impact of an event and disruption to your business. We’ve developed approaches based on over a century of experience in North America and around the globe that can provide flexible risk transfer options and services that help cover you before, during and after an event.

Whether your property lies solely within the U.S. or you have international operations, we can support your traditional risk transfer needs with flexible, broad commercial property insurance forms that are customizable for the needs of your industry and business. We are also an industry leader in fronting, reinsurance and related services for clients with captive insurers.

But what if you could go beyond risk transfer to prevent or reduce damage and minimize the impact of an event on your business? Zurich can help you do this through Risk Engineering and Claims services that help you build resilience whether you are self-insured, manage your risks through a captive or utilize a more traditional approach to risk transfer. And with Zurich, our global footprint can provide you access to these services around the globe, providing a consistent level of Risk Engineering and Claims service no matter where you conduct business.
