The advantages for you

Our experience with Swiss clients shows that the following things are especially important when working together:

  • 1

    Flexibility thanks to an open system

    International risk solution requirements can vary considerably depending on the sector, location or how the company is organised. Our network can cater for individual client requirements and arrange bespoke country-specific partnerships.

  • 2

    First class reporting

    The reporting of international programmes is demanding and must comply with the most recent governance, risk and compliance standards at all times. With modern IT tools and servers located in Switzerland and Germany, we ensure security, transparency and reliability.

    Responsibility to clients

    Trust is also a matter of closeness – which is why we know exactly what our clients’ aims and requirements are. Every client knows its Funk advisory team personally and values the uncomplicated and direct communication style.

    Swissness even in faraway countries

    Large production facilities or complex loss situations are handled by our Swiss experts directly in situ. This applies to both the risk engineering and the support of the local network partner.

    Corporate culture

    Face-to-face partnership with clients, the central European culture and the commercially run network partners have been key features of our network for decades. This is what sets us apart from others in the market from our clients’ point of view.
