If you have received this flyer (shown below) in the post you might be asking: who is Swiss Nova Insurance?
After searching the Swiss federal government website priminfo.ch and finding no insurance provider with this name the Le News team was wondering too, so we called the company on the mobile number listed on the brochure, and asked them if they were an insurance company or an insurance broker. The person who answered said they were insurance brokers.
Insurance brokers sell other companies’ products, usually earning a commission. This explains why Swiss Nova Insurance is not listed on priminfo.ch as an insurance provider.
