Zurich saw big rise in profits

INSURANCE giant Zurich – which employs more than 600 people in Hampshire – has seen a big rise in profits.
The boost came at the same time as the business launched new initiatives to create a “progressive and inclusive” workplace.
Zurich UK saw earnings rise by 59 per cent to £413million last year, while its operating profit in general insurance rose 97 per cent to £271m.
In life and savings, operating profits rose 15 per cent to £142m.
The company – which employs 638 people in Whiteley – has been “repositioning” itself in the UK over the past three years, seeking to simplify the business with a focus on customer service.
